    I think you mean fake wainscoting. It is easy to create with 2x2 lumber. It is just labor intensive. Plans can be found on-line.

      yes, this is done with 2x2 lumber and paint. you can paint the wood one color and the inside of the boxes with another. it looks really good. but be warned it is a lot of work and measuring.

    I once achieved this in a den purchasing some tall frames at a dollar store that had truly ugly photos in them. I popped out the photos, sprayed the frames with a cherrywood color paint to match moldings and measured out where I wanted them on the walls by using a paper bag template tacked in place with painters tape. I wallpapered inside the frames with coordinating wallpaper to my chair rail border.
