DIY Entry Way Plank Wall

2 Materials
1 Day

Hello friends!!! Janice here :) Let me tell you about my entry way plank wall. For a long time I felt that my entry way was sooooo boring!!!! Finally, my sister Beverly (yes, she's the creative one) said "Hey why don't you do planks on your entry way wall"? Brilliant, why didn't I think of that!!!?
This blue wall was in need of some character. Don't you agree?
This project is perfect if you have a wall with inside corners. That way you can go all the way to the end of the wall with the planks. No worries about trimming anything out. It cost right around $75 including the hooks. What do you think about the hooks???? If you like them you can {aff link} find the exact ones I got by clicking here.
Then I built a cute entry way bench for only $15 in lumber. What do you think!? Find the detailed tutorials here. Thanks for stopping by!

    Is shelf sturdy enough w/o brackets for support underneath?

      @Canajenk So far, it's holding up really well. The shelf is supported by the wood casing underneath it, which I attached to the wall studs.

    I can't remember if I asked this but when they cut the plywood were the edges chipped, frayed?

    I love this idea I want to do it in my entry way. How long did you have to wait to sand the latex paint. My experience with latex paint is that it starts to curl off unless it dries for months. thanks for the post
