Fake Wainscoting Tutorial

Decor Ideas 01.06.15
An easy way to update your home with decorative moldings.This is the finished product and we created the look of wainscoting by first adding a chair rail from Lowe's using a nail gun, painted the wall in a semi-gloss white paint. You can find more ideas at my blog, www.decorchick.com.

    Did you buy the nail gun or rent it?

    You did buy the box frames at Lowes? Can't seem to find at Home Depot on-line? Would love to just buy them and use like you did...

    Went to Lowe's and they said must place order for the pre-made frame boxes. We, instead made our own framed boxes attached to two adjoining walls in our kitchen, chalked and used Rich Lux MAB semi-gloss white paint and turned out BEAUTIFUL. Thanks so

      Christine P what size picture frames did you use? Mine were 17 x 20 that we made....was thinking about that idea too and would make it a lot easier. Want to do another wall in my foyer.

    Went to Lowe's in Plymouth Meeting, Pa. & they do supply the pre-made framed boxes @ only $ 16.95 each. Needed five and measured & glued to the wall, chalked, lightly sanded and used Rich Lux semi-gloss white paint and turned out GREAT!

    The wainscoting treatment is beautiful but what I really fell in love with is the fireplace mantel being used on the wall as a display shelf!

    This is awesome! What color did you end up painting the wall? I see it was a dark beige before.
