The homework room was a little bit boring, so we teamed up with Home Depot to add a cozy touch with some gray paint.
Our homework room was just not coming together…until we slapped a coat of beautiful paint from Home Depot on the walls. Then suddenly it had that cozy, inviting feel I was going for!
The upstairs homework room got a face lift with a fresh coat of paint!
In our new home, we have an upstairs bonus room area. We call it the loft, or the homework room. It’s the place where we have computers that the boys can use, games, a printer, a lots and lots of books.
I really wanted this room to feel cozy and inviting, but even after putting in the bookshelves and buying a couch and rug, it still didn’t have the feel I was going for.
So what did we decide to do? PAINT, of course!!

The Home Depot created a genius solution for choosing paint colors in your home
The biggest challenge that we all have with paint is trying to find a color. But I found the most genius solution! The Home Depot and Pinterest just teamed up to create The Home Depot x Pinterest Peel and Stick Paint Sample Kits!
Here’s what’s so amazing about these Peel and Stick Paint Sample Kits:
- They come with six different colors so you can test a variety of colors
- Two coats of real paint are on each sticker so you can see exactly what your paint will look like
- You can peel them on and off your walls easily so you can test in various locations and get a feel for lighting
- There’s no odor and they’re non toxic
- No need to buy 6 different paint samples and paint your wall in a bunch of patches to test the color
Which sample kit we chose, and the paint color we chose
We got the Grays sample kit, which is full of gorgeous shades of gray from light to dark, and we decided on Dark Pewter from Behr.
The color was perfect, and a couple of coats of paint later we had the coziest homework room. I’m just so happy with how it turned out!
