How we updated our Living Room with 1x3s and Paint

  • amazing! I am wondering about doing one accent wall of paneling like that behind our couch. But then I wrestle with the "where would I hang art" question like you? Above the paneling - in the paneling?

    I love the idea too. I am wondering how it would look halfway up the wall, almost like wainscotting? I really love the look! Easier to hang art too possibly.
