The #BEHRBox Challenge

I love a good DIY challenge. Some of my favorite projects ever have come from being given some guidelines or specific materials to work with. So, when BEHR® contacted me to see if I wanted to do their #BEHRBox challenge it was an obvious, YES.


Behr Box Challenge!

I feel like I should add that my husband and I are obsessed with BEHR® Marquee paint. The quality is amazing (and we have tried lots of paints.) You can’t find a better paint for the price. It’s so good. Their 2018 color trends have just been announced and they are so good. The color of the year is called “In The Moment” – it’s that greyish, blueish green you see in the photos.  The challenge is to use their 2018 Color Trends palette to create a DIY project that is inspired by the items that came in my #BEHRBox. It also needs to be easy and something that can be done in one weekend. My kind of project! Two weeks from now I’ll share my DIY Pretty fun, right? It gets better. We are giving away a $100 Home Depot gift card, so if you have your wheels turning thinking about a project, you should definitely enter – more info will be at the bottom of this post!

Behr Box Challenge!

If you aren’t familiar with BEHR® it can be found at The Home Depot – and you can pick up their 2018 color palette there too! This palette is carefully chosen and this year it is based on mindful living. I like the theme because I think we all tend to just do things sometimes without thinking them through – even in our homes. When I first moved into my house I decided to paint an accent wall right away. I chose a color I loved, and I did it. That wall is still beautiful, but since then I’ve slowly decorated other rooms and there hasn’t been a lot of cohesiveness throughout the house. Part of that is indecision, and that my style and taste has changed over the years. It’s totally normal. But recently I started trying to be more mindful of my choices and paint colors, because what I ultimately want is a home full of the colors that I love, that is cohesive throughout. I don’t believe in sticking hard and fast to any decorating rules, but being mindful is key.


So what’s in my box?

BEHR® Paint samples in three colors:
– In the Moment
– Soul Search
– Quiet Time
Paint chip cards for the BEHR 2018 Color Trends palette (to no one’s surprise, I’m obsessed with the pink!)
The Home Depot® gift card
Wooster® brushes (so good)
Liberty® Hardware samples – there’s a couple of different pulls, a switch cover, a caster
Fabric swatches
Glass bottles filled with coffee beans, sand, and some beautiful shells


Behr Box Challenge!
As you may have gathered, my mindful living theme is COASTAL LIVING. I live near the gulf coast (Houston!) but I don’t usually decorate with super coastal vibes. That being said, I LOVE to mix styles – and this color palette is gorgeous so this will be a really fun challenge and I’m excited to see how my project will turn out. I’ll be posting my finished project here on October 18th.

Now to decide what to make! I will probably be sharing some updates here and there on Instagram stories so make sure you are following us over there. Have you been thinking?

Okay – now for the #BEHRBox Challenge giveaway!

    I just replaced our water heater which is in our laundry room, and while I was in there for three hours, I realized how ugly that room is. Now we are going to paint the whole room and add some shelving. #BEHRBox

    I’m juggling a boatload of projects at the moment — painting and rescreening my porch, decorating my daughter’s first “big girl” bedroom, and converting the garage to a playroom.


    My husband and I gutted our bathroom. We are halfway through putting in a new one.


    We are about to start re-doing the stairs going down to our finished basement. They have ugly carpet that’s been there since we moved in. We are replacing the carpet with wood next weekend plus repainting the walls in that area.

    Oh my goodness are we in a project. When Hurrican Irma came thsi way, we did not lose like amny tohers but we did suffer my damage to our bathroom. Now we are in the middle of a full on DIYer project and I am praying we kmake it through it. We had planned to do it earlier, but kind of got into sooner than later. We are in the middle of doing of the floor right now.


    We are in the middle of working on our den. We are in the process of transforming it into a office/reading/bar room area. We are trying to decide on chairs, end tables, and lighting. #BEHRBox

    Have been dreaming about updating my porch! Currently it’s 2 mismatched (not in a cute way!) chairs and 2 tables that are incorrectly sized for the height of the chairs. I would enjoy replacing the chairs with 2-3 that match, painting one of the tables, and adding lots of potted plants. #BEHRBox

    Angela Hendricks

    I moved into my first home at the beginning of May. My family and I worked hard and made the outside gorgeous with planters, plants, and a butterfly garden but now its time to work on the inside! I really want to repaint all the rooms. They are the same colors from the last owner. All the rooms are tan or dark green and I hate it. I would love to get some pretty light colors and make my rooms look light and airy! #BEHRBox
