Gray isn't just gray -- it comes in a wide variety of intensities and shades, with subtle nuances that add a designer approach to any decor. And the right shade is a matter of personal preference. "First find out what emotion you want your space to play into -- airy, earthbound, dramatic -- then proceed to choose your color from there," says designer and PPG Pittsburgh Paints color and design adviser Vicente Wolf.
I wanted a wood entry table without breaking the bank! I was searching for one that was long enough for my entry way and have the rustic wood look but was unable to find. Headed over to the local home improvement store and got 4-2x2 2-2x4 and 2-wider wood panels for the top. Several wood screws and ready for sanding. Purchased two in one poly and stain paint, did three coats and all done! I get so many compliments on my new table!
