Pink Board and Batten Wall

Want to transform a space in YOUR home without breaking the bank? Try painting a wall! Our freshly painted Pink Board and Batten Wall completely changed the look of this room in a day, oooh la la!

This post is sponsored by Ace Hardware. I received product and compensation, but all opinions are my own. When we purchased our home, every single wall was painted the same tan color and the rooms all blended together with little character. Slowly but surely, I hand painted every wall. However, in my dining room, I added a print wallpaper and it’s sat that way for 4 years. It’s since split, boo. Instead of replacing it, I decided to go bold and add a wood wall treatment and finish it off with a trendy blush pink hue. Enter Clark+Kensington paint at Ace Hardware, along with their 2020 color trends

I perused their samples and came across some absolutely gorgeous options. I considered going really dark with a yummy shade of black, Black Chiffon N-C15, part of the Remastered Home palette, but my table and floors in the dining room are already dark, and I wanted the wall to *pop*. So a creamy beige/pink it was with… drum roll… Vanilla Chai N-W9, a shade in Clark+Kensington’s Tranquil Home palette! We love the warmth it brings, and, along with the other colors on the Tranquil Home palette, this color is reflective of the urge to “slow down” in the midst of our everyday chaos.

Here’s a “before” picture of the dining room. The wall behind the table is pretty dull with nothing on it, right? We gathered some furring strips and created an easy board and batten wall, then finished with a small ledge to place pictures on. (You can see the full DIY here.)

Time to paint! I grabbed a gallon of Clark+Kensington Satin Designer White Acrylic Latex Paint and Primer in one and had it mixed in Vanilla Chai N-W9. I love this paint because it eliminates the need to prime beforehand with its premium advanced formula paint – busy mom win in my book! It‘s fast-drying, provides excellent coverage in just a few coats, and delivers a smooth finish that dries evenly. No need for touch ups!

To get started, I first taped off the edges and baseboards then poured my silky Vanilla Chai into a painter’s tray.

The paint is thick and smooth, just the way I like it! I gloved up with disposable gloves then used a 2” paint brush from Ace to paint the edges and sides of the furring strips.

Once all of the edging was done, I used a 4” paint roller to paint in between the furring strips.

Since Clark+Kensington’s latex acrylic paint is fortified with microbeads, I only had to roll on 2 coats of paint and now have plenty of the leftover gallon to use for future walls or projects. Yay!

  1. I love how this room came out, you did a great job! I have a lot of similar colors in my bedroom and wanted to ask you what color gray paint you used on the wall. It’s very grounding, I absolutely love it!

  2. Loving it all, thinking about doing something like this in my bedroom😍 I’ve looked and looked for where you got the wallpaper from and clearly, I’m missing it. Is there somewhere you have it listed, brand, style/name etc? Thanks for any info!

  3. This is such a pretty color and can’t wait to see how the wallpaper looks with it, I can see it is going to be lovely!
