I decided to start in the middle. I found the center of the wall between the window and the right wall, marked and just started building out from there.
Mountain Accent Wall
I created this mountain accent wall in my son's room using thin strips of wood lattice. I’ve never done an accent wall like this before so I wasn’t really sure where to start. The hardest part of this project was coming up with the design. I did a few rough sketches of the look I wanted then changed them as needed along the way. Once you get going though, things start moving a lot faster! For this project you'll need a chalk pencil, tape measure, speed square, level, Liquid Nails, and a nail gun.
Make sure all your lines are level along the way.
Here is the first peak drawn with a chalk pencil.
I just kind of eyeballed the other two peak heights. You can have as many as you want.
Here is a close up view of the wood lattice I used. It is from Lowe's and cost $5 each. I used eight of them.
Once I got the three main mountains up, I started playing around with the design of the rest of the boards and changing things as I went. I don’t feel like there is an exact science to this, just go with what looks good to you. I used Liquid Nails and a nail gun to attach the wood strips to the wall. Check for level again before nailing.
I repeated a lot of the same spacing measurements as I went to make things look cohesive. I also decided to add some horizontal lines just to break everything up a bit. I think it looks like the horizon and I love it.
I painted the trim the same color as the wall, Pine Mountain by Behr. It is a gorgeous dark sage green!
I couldn’t be happier with how this mountain accent wall turned out. With everything painted the same color, the mountains are just subtle enough to not be overwhelming.
