Haven't been posting much due to that survival factor....had a few tough winter weeks with very bored kids home from school.  But we have been working on a few things, one of which was painting the upstairs hall.
 Love the gray color, it's the "flow" color that starts in the kitchen, goes through the first floor hall, into the foyer and continues upstairs.  Since we were painting and had to remove the banister, we figured it was a good time to fix UGLY brass builder hardware that was holding up the railing (don't know what the name of those pieces would be...)  We went to great lengths to make sure all hardware and fixtures in the house were Oil Rubbed Bronze, but those railing pieces were somehow overlooked. 
All better now!  That is ORB spray paint, and apparently that is a hot commodity.  Hubby ran to Walmart to pick up and they were all out.  So we went to Lowes the next day and got the very last can they had!  I think it looks great for spray paint, even though we didn't prime first (which would be an absolute must if it were a piece that you would touch often, these were chipping easily.)

I don't know how the real bloggers are able to add a hundred pictures....just those 2 took forever to upload, not to mention the 10 minutes it took me to learn how to rotate the top pic.  Hmm.
