Create a Wood Planked Wall

13 Jan

Wood can add such warmth and character to a living space.  I love the beautiful wood-planked walls that I’ve been seeing all over Pinterest and in magazines.  This sounds like a perfect indoor, January project to me! There are multiple blogs that give you step-by-step instructions on creating one of these in your home including:

Thrifty Decor Chick Think about the decor of your space before you decide what color and finish you might use on your wood.  So many choices! ov_1200 stain01 You can use old pallets, wood from a reclaimed wood dealer, old wood flooring, or even some 1×4 wood from a hardware store.  (Be sure to get the highest grade of wood in this case, to ensure that the wood is straight and clean.) Perhaps a white pickle finish for a French Provincial look, a clear varnish on some old barn wood for a Primitive accent wall, or a mix of greens, blues, yellows, reds and purples for a modern flair.  I wish I had multiple homes to decorate just so I could try all of these out! Enjoy working inside during the winter months!
