A few months ago, I shared our living room makeover (you can see all the details on that makeover HERE). The makeover included a DIY Elegant paneled wall – one of my favorite projects to date!
Since moving into our home, I have struggled with what to do with the inset walls. However, I didn’t want to build bookshelves since we have a huge wall of shelves in the next room. I wanted the inset to appear more special, so this DIY detailed paneling was perfect for the space. It adds interested without taking away from the fireplace (the focal point).
I wanted to give my family room an entirely new look, and this DIY paneled wall makes such an elegant statement. I do not claim to be a woodworker, but I am pleased with the result and spent around $300. You can see the full detailed tutorial HERE.
Here is the before: I stenciled the wall early on to add some interest, and I am glad it was paint instead of wallpaper. I was able to just paint right over the pattern!
The progress: Caulk is your friend in this project – notice the gaps.
And the after!
I did this wall treatment entirely solo, so I promise it is a DIY project you can do as well! See the full tutorial HERE.
Go create something!
