I've got grey on the mind after being at Emily's house. She painted her walls a soft grey, grey sectional from West Elm, might do a grey chevron rug, grey fabric. I know it sounds like a lot, but it's so soooooothing. Neutral, but not tan (ewwww!) EVERYthing looks good with grey-- yellow, red, navy, turquoise. I want to makeover my whole house in greys. But on my mind now is my kitchen table. It's always been too big for the space, and I took the top off the pedestal bottom because at some point my mom chopped the kitchen table to make it coffee table. When I took it, I bought an icky wrought iron base, and stuck the thing on top. It's kind of cool because I guess someone owed my grandfather money, and that's how he paid him-- with a handmade table. As it is a bit too large for our kitchen, I'd love to make it back into the coffee table, and stain it GREY! The lacquer is coming off, and it needs to be refinished anyway. This will totally create a snowball affect of having to buy this table for the kitchen, then a new TV and console for the TV room (the huge armoir won't fit with the coffee table!), and while I'm at it, might as well get new kitchen chairs for the new table. I'm thinking these.
I'm loving the grey wash I'm seeing on wood. This is about how I picture what the pedestal table would look like, but shorter as a coffee table.
