Fake Wainscoting Tutorial

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.

    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.
