Desk backsplash area - Hello, I really like this desk. Mine is at the end of a long cabinet run which will include a tiled backsplash. But I am thinking that above the desk area I will not put the tile, but instead just use paint, beadboard, corkboard or something else. I can't tell what you have there - is just wall board or is there something else? Thanks!!!

hi there, it's just drywall painted with magnetic paint - those are magnets on the wall.

Hi Karen, Thanks for getting back with me so soon. We love what you did in the picture, we are in a full kitchen remodel for Christmas and needed ideas for the workstation. Yours was the perfect design we were looking for.
Have a wonderful Christmas! Thanks Again for the information.

Are your kitchen cabinets also white? Thanks! - I love this and would like to do something similar in our breakfast area, but our lichen cabinets are brownish and can't be matched, so we're not sure what color to do the desk area.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Heffernan was a little worried that the wall color she chose — Benjamin Moore's Gray Owl — would make the room cold. But it ended up balancing perfectly with the dark wood floors, which are made of red oak and stained with a matte chocolate brown stain. At this desk space, she had the paint magnetized, which makes it perfect for hanging up little notes and photos.
