Fifty Shades of Gray {Paint}

By Michelle Zakko




It seems like everywhere I turn these days people are buzzing about E L James book “Fifty Shades of Grey,”.

And I’m here to correct her.  Dear E L James, there are not 50 Shades of Gray but rather 232 absolutely amazing shades of Gray made by Benjamin Moore.

It seems that these days Gray is hotter than a heat wave!  While Jane Dagmi mentions in her post Gray Soothes the Soul No Matter the Style. “Gray, just like a giant cloud, brings the indoor temperature down.”; anyone who has read the trilogy would beg to differ.



In honor of the best seller, here are 50 hot Shades of Benjamin Moore Gray:
