A lot has been going on in this house lately, just not a lot of blogging. School is back in full force for me and I am determined to keep it in high gear. The hubby and I have been doing a lot to our house in the meantime. I love all of the planked walls popping up throughout the blogging world and Pinterest. We decided to make a feature wall using this style.
I followed a method similar to The House of Smiths. They give a great tutorial of how they created this look. I also used the underlayment and had Home Depot cut it in strips of 6”. I will say that this did not always create the straightest cuts on my strips.
We purchased this Ryobi Air Strike brad nailer for the project. I have already found other uses for it and find it was a great purchase.
I learned a lot on this project and know now what I would have done differently. My seam does not lie in the center of the wall and I was not able to achieve a seamless look. I would now pay better attention to the centering of the seam. You live, you learn. Did the wall turn out perfectly? No. Would I go back and change it now? No. Its not perfect, but then again neither am I and so it is fitting. I still absolutely love it and the impact it had on the room.
A work in progress…I’ll be back with more pictures of the changes going in on in our home!
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
