Homeschool Room | Striped Accent Wall with BEHRⓇ Paint

This post is sponsored by BEHR Paint.

Back to school brings so many emotions – excitement, nervousness, and of course, wishing we could freeze time to keep our babies just as they are!!

Did you know this room used to be my office?! Once I put in the effort to have a dedicated work space, everything changed for the better! I could have a seat at this desk and dive into work while feeling inspired by the walls around me. Now that virtual school is in full swing, I wanted my kids to have that same feeling while doing their school work to separate “play time” from “school time”.

We tried doing school at the dining room table and that was just a little too chaotic!

The Before

This accent wall was done entirely with PAINT! Like I mentioned, it used to be my office!

BEHR Paint Colors: Pink Posies M130-1, Wild Geranium M130-3, Diva Glam P120-6, Glitterati P120-7

Let’s talk about these colors, shall we?!

BEHR Paint just released their BEHR® Color Trends 2021 Palette, featuring 21 on-trend, approachable colors. Along with20 other creators, I have been working with BEHR Paint behind-the-scenes to show how you can use each of these beautiful hues in your homes, and I can’t wait to show you how my project turned out!

I mean, look at the saturation directly from the can! This is one of the reasons I’m such a tried and true fan of Behr Paint! 

My featured color is…..Euphoric Magenta M110-7!

Because this space is for my kids, I knew I wanted something bright and saturated – Euphoric Magenta did not disappoint! The color trends palette has so many good options, but this deep purple really stood out to me. The rest of the room is styled in a boho vibe and Euphoric Magenta matches the aesthetic perfectly!

I mean, look at the saturation! This is one of the reasons I’m such a tried and true fan of Behr Paint!

The Wood Accent Wall

I loved the idea of having these colors start on the wall and continue to the ceiling. I really wanted the colors to pop off the warm white walls and not look too busy.

I had played with the idea of skinny shiplap in this room as well. And when I couldn’t decide, I combined them!!

How We Made This Project Happen:

  1. We went to The Home Depot and purchased 1 in. x 2 in. x 8 ft. Premium Kiln-Dried Square Edge Whitewood Common Board.

    I have 5 for each color.

  2. Paint them with a paint brush or sprayer.

  3. Arrange them on the wall.

    Use a spare trim piece to measure in evenly space between boards.

  4. Using a nail gun or a hammer and nail, secure them to the wall and continue on the ceiling.

Ready for the final reveal?!

How amazing is this rug that I also picked up from The Home Depot? I didn’t realize what an amazing rug selection they have online and this one fit the vibe of this room perfectly!
