This DIY accent wall is great for beginners! It doesn’t require precise cuts and can easily be done in a weekend. The wall is extremely budget-friendly, and it’s easy to customize it to fit your space. We’ve seen similar walls done in nurseries, entryways, and living rooms. For a more subtle effect, or to work in a more visually busy room, paint the wall treatment the same color as the rest of the room and it will create awesome texture in the space without a bold statement.
This tutorial explains exactly how to install a budget-friendly, vertical faux shiplap and it even has an incredible, free project calculator that will make this project 100x easier. If you hate math, this is the tutorial for you.
The vertical faux shiplap in our bathroom is the boldest color in our whole home and we love it! This is our kids’ bathroom, so we wanted it to have some personality. It’s a tiny space and it seemed like the perfect place to do something totally different from the rest of the house. We were inspired by this Emily Henderson design, but since we already had one blue wooden wall in our home, we knew we wanted to take it in a different direction.
Like shoulder pads, parachute pants, and denim jackets, wallpaper is back in style! It’s time to learn how to install removable wallpaper, because this is the perfect way to incorporate trendy patterns and colors without any long-term commitment. So many are hesitant to try trendy options in their homes, because they don’t want to spend time and money on something knowing that you’ll want to change it in a few years. Peel and stick wallpaper eliminates those concerns!
We learned how to make plywood shiplap, and we were able to cover our entire bathroom accent wall for only $30!
We LOVE wooden wall treatments, which is probably no surprise to you since we used them in our bedroom, our kids’ bathroom, and now in our master bathroom. When designing this space, we debated between board and batten and shiplap. We did this room during a kid-free week where the kids were at their grandparents’ house, and we had a long list of projects we wanted to get done during that time. In order to save time, we decided to just do a single accent wall and shiplap was the perfect option to add some texture and character.
