I love adding texture and dimension to a space by simply adding a wood accent wall. I decided my living room needed a little more pizazz so off to Lowe's I went! Here is a before shot:
I gathered my supplies, which consisted of the following:
1.) 1x2x8 Pine select Boards ( I used about 15 but that will vary depending on the size of your wall)
2.) Brad nailer
3.) 1 1/4" Brad nails
4.) Wood filler
5.) Paint (I used Alabaster by Sherwin Williams)
After figuring out what I wanted my pattern to be I started framing out the wall like a giant picture frame.
Once the wall was framed out, I started with one long diagonal board. The placement was random but this would be the main board from which I would design the entire wall. I attached another board near the top of the long diagonal to create a V shape. That divided the wall into 3 sections that I would run boards inside, in opposite directions to create my pattern.
I measured my spacing evenly between boards in each section and just scribed my angles on each board as I added them to get my angled cuts.
Once I had all of my boards up, I simply filled the holes, sanded, and painted my wall.
And here is the finished product:
