I love color, especially Teal! One thing I have always wanted is a Teal accent feature wall. Well, I finally made it happen by updating my Shiplap feature wall in my bonus room!
My Bonus room has been a space that has never been completed; finally finishing this wall has me motivated to complete the space.
We use the room as a playroom, a TV room, my craft storage room, and if need be a guest room. Since we moved in I have painted all the walls a light grey then installed a shiplap feature wall behind our TV. I originally painted the shiplap wall a dark grey, but I honestly never loved it.
Here are some before pictures.
This room was in desperate need of some color, and what better color than Teal! For the color I went with Blue Nile (HGSW1331) a color from one of the HGTV HOME™ by Sherwin-Williams 2018 Color Collections of the Year, Next Journey. You can find HGTV HOME™ by Sherwin-Williams INFINITY Interior Paint and Primer at Lowe’s.

I got started right away and started painting with my Purdy brushes and rollers. First, I painted all the shiplap seams & cut the edges with a brush. Then I went back and rolled the rest.
This wall is large but it only took 1 1/2 hours to completely paint.
After everything was dry I moved my furniture back in place and I was ready to decorate. I decided to add a simple photo gallery wall using all white frames with black & white pictures.
I love how the frames pop off the Teal wall! Now for some after pictures.
The color couldn’t be more perfect! I absolutely love Blue Nile (HGSW1331) a color from Next Journey Color Collection, one of the HGTV HOME™ by Sherwin-Williams 2018 Color Collections of the Year!
The before and after are pretty drastic, and it makes the room feel sophisticated even though it’s mainly a playroom.
