DIY Decorative Wall Moulding

In case you missed my earlier post, BEHRBox is a fun challenge where I received a box full of paint colors and items to spur my creativity.  I created a weekend project drawing inspiration (and using colors) from the box. My paint colors included the Behr 2019 Color of the Year:

As well as the Behr 2019 Color Trends Pastel palette, Soft Focus:

I was asked to use the 2019 Color of the Year (Blueprint S470-5) as well as one of the colors from my assigned palette.

I decided to add decorative wall moulding to my stairway landing and make it a more useful place (the swiss crosses were fun but no longer fit my decor style).  Here’s a before photo:

Watch the tutorial for adding decorative wall moulding here:

I primed my painted patterned wall before I began.


To begin, measure the wall and make a plan for the decorative moulding.  I used grid paper which was really helpful for measurements. Once I had a plan and measurements, I transferred the plan to the wall and drew out all my frames.


Using 1.25″ trim, I mitered and framed various sized decorative moulding.  Use a chop saw to cut the trim (45 degree angle) and a nail gun is very helpful when adhering the frames to the wall.


Use will filler to fill in the nail holes and frame gaps. Once the wood filler is dry, use a sand block to sand the frame smooth.

Paintable caulk is needed to fill in the gaps around the frame.


After the caulk is dry, paint the walls and frames. I painted everything the same color on the decorative moulding wall – including the door frame and baseboards (to see how to easily paint baseboards with carpet, go here).

I had a poll on my instagram stories asking which pastel I should use for my walls, and Cotton Grey HDC-NT-20 was the winner by a landslide, and I used BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Interior Paint in a matte finish.

I also wanted to add Blueprint S470-5, so I painted a $10 thrift store side table using BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Interior Paint also in a matte finish.

And here is the reveal of the completed space!

Cotton Grey HDC-NT-20 may be my new favorite grey paint color – it is gorgeous (and goes so well with my doors painted in Orion Grey N510-6 also by Behr).

The wall treatment only cost around $100, but it adds so much to the space!

 And the blue table adds such a fun pop of color…

2019 Color of the Year

BEHR 2019 COLOR OF THE YEAR: Blueprint

This post is sponsored by the Behr Paint Company.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I am excited to be participating in the BEHRBox DIY challenge! BEHR sent a box with colors from the BEHR 2019 Color Trends palette as well as some themed items to spur my creativity.  I will create a weekend project drawing inspiration (and using colors) from the box.

It was like Christmas day when I received my BEHRBox.  I opened it up to find a bunch of smaller packages, and I had so much fun opening everyone one of them!

For 2019, Behr curated four distinct coordinated palettes – all coordinate with the BEHR 2019 Color of the Year:

I love how Blueprint will work with any decor space and style.

I was thrilled when I opened my box and found I was given colors from the pastels palette.

The Behr Pastels are:

I will be using Blueprint and at least one of the other colors to create my DIY masterpiece. Now, I’m guessing you’re dying to know what else was in those packages?  Inside were all kinds of various beautiful pastel-colored items.

Flowers, fabrics, candles and even macaroons were waiting for me!

Behr knows my love language because besides the pretty things, I also received some DIY essential gifts like painter’s tape, paint brushes, hardware, sketching paper, a sand block and a The Home Depot® gift card.

I would love to know – what color (or colors) would you love for me to incorporate in my DIY project?  And speaking of my project, any guesses for what I’m planning?!  It involves our stairway landing, and I just finished sketching it out (and can’t wait to see it come to life)!

Navy Bath Makeover

It is amazing how paint can transform a space!  I’m sharing all the details behind our inexpensive Navy Bath Makeover.

This post has been sponsored by BEHR®.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Navy Bathroom Makeover

When we first moved into our home, I was loving all things neutral.  I added a paneled wall treatment, painted the walls a neutral beige and added a starched fabric wall treatment to our half bath.

Four years later, I decided it was time for a bathroom refresh as we head into the new year.  I have been crushing on navy lately, and I knew a color would add some fun and drama to the space – without breaking the bank.

Navy Bath Makeover

I went to our local Home Depot and played around with BEHR’s ColorSmart app.  It is so easy – just grab a paint chip and scan the barcode!  The app allows you to see the color in various spaces, and it helps visualize what your room will look like in a color.

The display also shows the various paint sheens and suggests the best use of each. I chose BEHR in Dark Denim.  

It is a navy, but it does have quite a bit of gray in it.  I wanted to avoid a more royal blue look, so I made sure to find something with a deeper undertone.  My space also has no natural light, so I only painted the upper wall to avoid making the room appear smaller.

I used BEHR’s Premium Plus Ultra paint in the eggshell finish – one of my favorite finishes.

I also painted the bathroom door using BEHR in Orion Gray – the same color I recently painted my laundry room doors (see more here).  I am slowly painting the doors in our mudroom hallway this gorgeous medium gray.  The doors were an off-white, but they see so much use that they were hard to keep clean.  This gray hides so much.

For the door, I began with two coats of KILZ premium primer.  I used a foam roller for a smoother finish and brush for hard-to-reach areas (like the inset panels in the doors).

Once the primer was dry, I added two coats of BEHR in Orion Gray – once again using the roller and brush.

The result is a sophisticated entrance into the bathroom.

The navy adds so much to the space!  I found an inexpensive rug and floral art and kept the decor minimal.

As I mentioned before, the bathroom has no natural light.  I kept the paneled walls their original off-white color to not allow the room to be swallowed by the darker color palette.

BEHR in Dark Denim is now one of my favorite navy paint colors!  Where can you see this color in your home?  I already know some other rooms I’d love to see it in my home!

BEHR Whisper White

BEHR Whisper White is the perfect warm white for any space.

Bathroom Makeover

hello beautiful frame

I love decorating bathrooms because they are spaces where you can have a little more fun and test creative limits.  I use color throughout our home and have never painted a space white.  However, I wanted to makeover my daughter’s bathroom, and I was ready to try something new.  White would brighten the room (who doesn’t love a bright bathroom?!), and I could accent with fun bright colors. I created this vision board for my daughter’s bathroom:


  • New hardware
  • Fun typography artwork
  • Behr Marquee Paint (white)
  • Kelly green accents
  • Playful shower curtain
  • Patterned accent wall (click HERE to see the tutorial)

Once I had my vision, I was ready to tackle my daughter’s bathroom makeover.  We recently used BEHR MARQUEE Exterior paint for the trim on our home, and we were instant fans.  I headed to The Home Depot to check out BEHR MARQUEE Interior Paint color selection.  This paint has a one-coat coverage guaranteed when tinted to any of the 372 colors in the MARQUEE Interior One-Coat Color Collection.  Do you realize what a time-saver this is?!

Behr Paint Whites

The color selection for BEHR products is unbelievable.  I never knew there were SO many shades of white.  The white I decided on is from the BEHR Home Decorators Collection, and it’s called “Whisper White.”

Behr Paints Whisper White

It was the perfect shade of white for my bathroom.  I was in love.

Whisper White Paint Color

It worked well with the off-white trim, and I was excited to paint over the flat greenish-beige paint that was currently in the bathroom.

Behr Marquee Paint

I bought a gallon of Behr’s Marquee Paint & Primer and was ready to tackle the project. White paint over darker paint can be difficult, but this Behr Marquee paint is amazing!  Its coverage is wonderful, and the entire room was almost done in one coat.  I went back through and touched up areas, but if you use one of the 372 colors I mentioned earlier in the MARQUEE Interior One-Coat Color Collection, there is a ONE-COAT coverage guarantee!  Also, check out BEHR’s website for all kinds of How-To’s.

I had a little fun painting the mirror a kelly green color.  I debated also painting the cabinets this beautiful shade, but I decided updating the hardware would be the best thing for now.  (I wasn’t quite ready to commit to green cabinets!)
