I’m so excited to announce a fun challenge that I’m participating in, plus a chance for YOU to win a $100 Home Depot gift card (stay tuned for that at the end of this post).
I’m partnering with BEHR for the #BEHRBox challenge, so they sent me a box of mystery goodies and a gift card to The Home Depot, and I have to make something with some of the items they sent. Whatever I make must fit an assigned theme, and mine is “Reflection.”
Here’s a peek at what came in the box:
And here’s a list of items that I received:
- A $500 gift card to The Home Depot
- Various pieces of Liberty Hardware
- 3 pots of BEHR Marquee paint (The colors are “In the Moment,” “Soft Focus,” and ” Wide Sky.”)
- a small round mirror
- a white fluffy cloth
- a bundle of fabric
- a decorative wall switchplate
- painter’s tape
- Wooster paintbrushes
- a picture frame
- paint stir sticks
- a sanding block
- BEHR 2018 Color Trends sample cards
As for the trends, there are 20 color trends curated for 2018 that will help you find the perfect color for any project you might be planning.
The 2018 Color of the Year is called “In the Moment,” and is a beautiful shade of blue/gray/green. It’s a very soothing shade, hence the appropriate name which reminds you to relax and be in the moment. Here are the 3 colors I received.
Here’s a little video of my unboxing.
Stay tuned to see what I end up making with all of these things! In the meantime, YOU could win a $100 Home Depot gift card.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post using #BEHRBox and tell me what you would make with all of these goodies. The giveaway ends on Oct. 24, and I will be posting my final project reveal and announcing the giveaway winner on Oct. 25!

Sarah Schafer says
Big, bold, DIY curtains for our newly DIY’d dining/music/reading room. The colors would be perfect!
I feel like this screams half bath makeover! The fabric could cover a small stool or become a valance for a window. The colors could be used in an ombré effect on the wall maybe!
I’d maybe use the gift card to revamp my kids teeny bathroom! It needs it and it’s such a tiny space.
With those particular items, I might update a small half bath or desk area. Maybe even a bench seat or something. As far as the gift card- we are making over our kitchen and it would help us buy paint for the cabinets or backsplash supplies

amy stonger says
I would make a mirror for the wall, complete with a decorative frame. I would like to have a shelf at the bottom of the mirror.
Sarah Decker says
I would take a literal approach to the challenge theme. Since it is based upon reflection and inspiration I would use the gift card to buy the wood necessary to build a vanity with some sort of built in lighting feature. The idea being you start each day in front of the mirror. It’s a time for self-reflection and inspiration. The calm color palette would provide a sense of calm. #BEHRBox
carol clark says
id put the hook for the bathroom and use the mirror for like a small toteable mirror with wood around it or i would use the cloth to lay on a table and build a spot the mirror would fit in and then place it there to reflect the rainbow effects of a vase with flowers in it that would be pretty
I would update my dressing area.

The paint colors remind me of a trip to Lake Tahoe so I’d Make some type of lake themed wall grouping.

#BEHRBox I think I would develop wall decor; find another old frame, or two or even more-larger, smaller ; put the smaller one in it; along with the mirror to create a decorative wall collage. Layer the frames, sort of putting one on top of another, asyemetriacally. 3-5 frames or items put together would be nice, depends on the size area needing decor.
i would paint and spruce up our guest room!

A few years ago my family decided to surprise me with a newly painted master bath ( I was away on a trip ). I came home to a half way painted brown master bath. Last month they again decided to surprise me by finishing the painting, except they started with a gray paint…it’s still halfway painted. Now it’s half brown and half grey with tan around the trim. So I would finally and completely paint my master bath and put down flooring over the linoleum. Thanks!

#BEHRBox I would create tons of cool items for the new house we are building!!!
Priscilla Torres says
I would use the paint to revamp some decor items such as a side table or chest and possibly the color of some baseboards around a small bedroom. I would use the fabric to make some new pillows or possibly reupholster a side chair. The hooks I would use as a wall decor item. I would hang them up and then maybe hang some vases with some twine and have some flowers peeking out of them. I would want the room to be as Serene and tranquil as possible. It would be the room I will go to for meditation and inspiration for creative projects.

Thank you for the opportunity to win a Home Depot gift cards. Home Depot is one of my favorite stores. I am in the process of having my bathroom remodeled. The color In The Moment would be perfect for my walls because it matches the pretty shade of green decorative tile that I chose to be used in my shower. I plan to paint a small curio cabinet and shelf in that bathroom and the color of Soft Focus would be perfect for those two items and would look lovely against the green walls. I really like the color Wide Sky. I need to paint a small bench on my front porch and that color would be so pretty.
