To be honest I'm not totally in love with the grey, but I'm not so bothered by it to feel the need to paint again. And it's a huge improvement over the mauve the previous owner painted the entire house. The dining set is vintage. We inherited it from my husband's side of the family after the grandparents died. The rest of the family wanted to donate everything, saying it was "good quality but really dated". We think it is amazing.
This past weekend my husband and I installed climbing shelves for our cat on an empty wall. The short, thick shelves are IKEA Lack and the longer ones we made. Unfortunately she managed to rip one of the wall anchors out, so we are going to have to figure out something to make them stronger.
