Still better way

Duplicate the layer that has the colors. Desaturate the duplicate layer. Add a layer mask by clicking on the little layer mask icon. Make sure the layer with color is visible - the eyeball is on. now with the desaturated layer active, click on the layer mask and start painting with black where you want the color to show through. If you reveal something you didn't want to, just paint over it with white.

I don't know why painting with black and white works, it just does

Maybe this would be easier

Duplicate color layer and desaturate second layer. Use the Eraser tool to remove B/W layer where you want the color to show through. NO masking required....

That works too, but with the layer mask, you can paint back with white if you make a mistake - sometimes I get ahead of myself and erase more than I can reverse in the history pallet.
