We like to talk about everything from home decor to fashion to parenting. The main overall theme though is FUN. If you don't like to laugh, then this probably isn't the place for you.
I’ve been dreaming about a dark accent wall somewhere in our home for quite sometime now. (Hibernation makes you think of about a billion projects you want to do in your house, believe me!) I keep seeing so many people use the “Peppercorn” color from Sherwin Williams and how beautiful of a statement it always seems to make. And once we added a new rug to our bedroom, I just knew that this was the room where it was meant to be!
Since our local paint shop only carries Benjamin Moore products, I had them find the equivalent to SW “Peppercorn,” which turned out to be “Gray” for BM (super creative name, huh?!) I bought a gallon but ended up not even needing half of that for two coats. I used the Aura line from Benjamin Moore because it has a built-in primer. It’s a bit pricier, but I’m all about skipping steps if I can help it!
Immediately, I fell in love with the result! Our furniture really pops now against the dark wall, and the color ties in so well with the ticking stripes in our quilt and the dark gray pattern in our rug. It was just what this space needed to complete it.
And now that I’m sorta kinda obsessed with this amazing color and have a good amount of it left over, I want to paint the cabinet in our master bathroom. So if you’ve got any tips on painting a pre-fab cabinet, please leave them for me in the comments down below. Do I need to sand it down first? Help! Nevertheless, though, isn’t the power of paint pretty darn incredible??!
