Miriam at Prudent Projects has a thing for grey, and so do I! Grey is my favorite. In fact, I was even hoping to name this baby boy Gray. It’s a solid boy name, not too common but not too zany either. I really like it. Sad news alert: my husband has vetoed it. His rock-solid reasoning is “I asked people at work, and they thought it was weird.” Well, in that case.
I mean, sheesh. Let’s make all our decisions by asking people at work, why don’t we. That’s why I try not to tell anyone our baby names until after the baby is born and named. Then you get their OPINIONS. And then you name the baby that anyway. And then it’s awkward.
So, I’m not telling you our baby’s name yet, but that’s because now we don’t even have one. Hit me with your suggestions! I’m hoping to find a one syllable, not too common, but not unheard of name that sounds good with the last name ‘Allen.’ Oh, and that the people at work will approve of. (eye roll)
ANNNYWAY, without further ado, here are Miriam’s lovely makeovers featuring the ever calm and soothing gray. First, this sad settee:
Is now so fresh and so clean, clean! I would love to have this tucked in any nook of my home. It’s the perfect size. Love the gray suede too.
And Miriam also took this dresser from offensively orange to nice and neutral, with a gorgeous walnut stain to really set it off. See more on her blog here.
