Erin lives in a row house with a brick façade that she and her husband found underwhelming. The brick was not the best quality and had mismatched mortar spots, and the bottom line was, they wanted to give their home some stand-out personality.

After testing out 12 shades of gray paint samples, Erin of 110 + 2 settled on Sherwin Williams’ Classic French Gray for the house and their Citrus for the front and back doors. The gray is classic, and the punchy yellow is fun and modern.

This project is also a great example of knowing when to call in the professionals. Although Erin and her husband are big DIYers, she calculated that the project took 80 man hours (a four-person crew finished the project in two 10-hour days).
