Want to know the crazy thing? We ordered this paint online. At the time, we didn’t even want to go into a hardware store and for the price of a gallon of Behr Charcoal Blue paint, we knew it was worth trying. Little did we know how many DIY paint projects a gallon of this paint would get us. Here are 6 (now 7) paint projects using Behr Charcoal Blue.
Where can you buy Behr paint?
We ordered it online from Home Depot. We did when we ordered our stock cabinets for our laundry room makeover. Now we thought we were going to use two gallons to paint our interior doors, but I guess that DIY project just hasn’t happened yet.
Pros to this Behr paint
- Cheaper than other semi-gloss latex enamel paints
- Does have a nice finished and shiny look
- Easily applies to different surfaces
We are normally Sherwin Williams paint people and you can see why in this repaint of our kitchen island. But even on sale, SW paint can sometimes run you a lot more than this paint. Therefore, that is why we tried this paint. As of right now, it is holding up on all of our projects (and we have kids that completely destroy things).
Do you need help deciding what color of paint to use?
We recently just tried Samplize and it totally beats having to buy individual paint samples. These 9″ x 14.75″ samples will get shipped directly to you and save the hassle of clean-up (we loved that).
Promos: Use code “FIRSTFIVE” to get $5 off your first purchase or now until 5/31 use code “GETPREPPED” for 10% off your order.
See our review to also get answers to frequently asked Samplize questions.
I am sure next year we can come back and update if this paint easily becomes damaged, etc.
Cons to Behr Paint
- Is not as thick as other latex enamel paints
- May need one extra coat compared to other brands

Wood Desk Tutorial with Charcoal Blue Accent Wall & Pegboard
Not only was Behr Charcoal Blue used to create an accent wall, but it was used to paint the opposite pegboards. Normally we wouldn't use "trim" paint for an accent wall, but be resourceful, and using supplies you already have is how we do things!
Mixing DIY chalk painted chairs and our favorite stain color added fun and eclectic feel to this homeschool room.

Why not keep an old light fixture and paint it? Here an old oak bathroom vanity light was completely made over with simple coats of paint. We love how this easy DIY paint project really modernizes the small space.
Amazing Charcoal Blue Closet Shelves
Using a combination of farmhouse brackets and painted wood shelves created a whole new vibe in this craft closet. Taking the doors off of this basement closet was a sure way to make this old closet completely functional.

We just love this accent wall with contrasting white pegboards. It is so clever that the opposite wall has the charcoal blue pegboard to easily help keep this room organized.
