My son's "clean" room.
Super Easy Barn Wood Plank Wall
We are chugging along room by room here in the house, and exciting news – I only have 3 more rooms to paint!! I think I’m going to throw a party when I’m done painting all this oak trim white. When we were planning my teen son's room I immediately thought of doing an accent wood wall. It was very easy to do since I enlisted the help of Weekend Walls.
Here’s how the wood plank box arrived. I was surprised as I imagined I’d be getting a hard to move pallet of wood.
The backs of each planks have suuupppeeerrrr sticky strips – these suckers aren’t going anywhere! They also covered each knot or crack with black paper, this was a small detail I really loved; over time if a knot falls out, you won’t have wall peeking through!
The wood is thin, lightweight and easy to work with – and yes, it is real wood! Just barn wood strips that are cleaned up and cut down to size; it's the easiest project I’ve done all year. The hardest part was getting the paper to peel off the tape on the back.
Look at all that color and texture. You do need a j-roller (or any kind of roller that has a little weight to it) to press everything down nice and tight to the wall.
Watch how easy this project is to complete:
If you are looking for instant character for your walls, I couldn’t recommend Weekend Walls highly enough. This was the “Natural” option, although they do have other colors. Use code ROOTSANDWALLS for 10% off your order!
