I was following a tutorial in blender on basic stuff like nodes, texturing and what not, i tried to hide one of the meshes when I was in edit mode and it went grey. I'm no longer able to edit nor select the mesh. i'm a beginner so you may have to go in depth on how to fix the issue.

    Please use the edit link at the bottom of your question (i.stack.imgur.com/lXFuK.png) and add more information on how you set up your project. Add images that might help us understand your scene and settings. – cegaton Jun 9 at 20:48

A screenshot will help to give a clear answer!

Try going to object mode again and going to edit mode. if you are not able to select the vertices or faces means that the object is a different from what you are trying to edit.

You probably don't have the object selected in object mode.

enter image description here

Select the object in the hierarchy (Pictured above, should be on the top-right of your Blender screen). If you wanted to edit the cube, you simply click on the cube in this menu and now you can go into edit mode.

Hope this was helpful!
