Becky's Top 5: Gray Paint

I love gray paint! If your home is feeling a bit dated (maybe your walls are a yellowish-tan or a drab brown) some beautiful gray paint can work wonders for you. It will make your home feel current, clean, and fresh! But, let's get real. How are you supposed to choose one gray when there are 1,000,000,000 options out there? Not to worry, I've compiled my top 5 favorite light gray paints just for you.

My top 5 favorite light gray paint colors! You just can't go wrong with these options. But always remember to paint some cardstock samples and see how they look in your home. It's crazy how paint can change under different lighting! Benjamin Moore Classic Gray, Behr Silver Drop, Sherwin Williams Repose Gray, Benjamin Moore Oyster Shell, Benjamin Moore Gray Owl!

You really can't go wrong with these options, but you'll still want to double check that they'll look great in your space. Lighting can have a huge impact on how your paint looks so you'll want to see what it looks like in your home before taking the plunge and painting your entire room. Paint a piece of cardstock and tape it to your wall for the day. Do you like how it looks throughout the day in different lighting? If so, go for it! If not, try the same process with another swatch.
