Creating an Accent Wall with WallPlanks

Hey Friends, 

I’m excited to partner with WallPlanks for a really fun project we are doing in our master bedroom. We have used a shiplap a few times on different projects, but this is so much easier! We wanted to add a shiplap accent wall behind our bed, and I am so glad we found this great product! 

This project only took one day for us to complete! No painting, no nail guns or aircompressors humming in the background. Almost no set up or mess. 

😊 Who doesn’t like projects like this!

Here is a time lapse video of our project!

Before Pictures

These before pictures of our bedroom are clean and nice… but we wanted to add a subtle touch behind our bed to give texture and added visual interest in this space. I recently repainted our bed frame with chalk paint/wax and loved the way it turned out. But to make the space perfect, I wanted to match the bed with a clean white shiplap behind.

The Process

1. When unpacking product from the boxes inspect for any damage/defects.
2. Prep the wall first with cleaning. Here is a great cleaner to use. https://rstyle.me/+M7ppMyQl72zJo0rvAn5_Xw  
3. Check for straight lines with a level.

4. Peel and stick. This is the fun part…
5. Use a J-roller to smooth the planks and adhere to the wall.

6. We had to make a couple minor cuts and we used this

Finishing touches

I kept this wall simple and only added one piece of framed wall art. I love the wall all by itself and it doesn’t need a lot, since it is already a statement piece.

Thanks for reading along and take a look at https://www.wallplanks.com for a variety of styles and selections for your next home project!

Winter Fashion 2019 – 2020

The Pantone Colors for Autumn/Winter 2019-2020 are confident in rich and strong colors… with forest green being a key color, along with peach pinks that add a warm glow and blues/pinks that are bold and daring. I love them all… but you know my neutral heart only adds these bright...

MAINTAINING THE CLUTTER

Simply Wrapping

I love gifts! I’m a gift giver and gift receiver kind of gal. Wrapping gifts is the creative extension of giving.  Christmas is the ultimate gift giving time… It can be stressful with all the to-dos, shopping, parties, gifts, teacher gifts, etc. So much to remember, so much to do...
The Big Idea We had this extra “room” in our bedroom that was designated as  the sitting/reading room right off of master bedroom. A cute idea, but honestly it felt like wasted space.
