Welcome back, I’m glad you stopped by.
Over our holiday break I completed a new DIY house project that involves pallet wood.
I’m a huge fan of wainscoting. It adds a comforting homey feeling not to mention a designer look.
It’s so inviting. It makes me want to grab a cup of coffee and chat for a while.
Speaking of coffee… grab a cup of coffee and let me show you how I got the look without the cost.
Items I used:
pallet boards (sanded and denailed)
saw & sander
caulking and caulking gun
measuring tape and pen
To start off, I nailed the top boards to the studs in the wall at the desired height. I also applied builders adhesive to the back of the boards.
Next, I added the second row. I measured and used a level to keep the distance the same along the wall.
I then added boards connecting the two boards.
Next, I added the lower vertical boards.
Using a caulking gun and paintable caulking, I filled all the holes, knots and cracks. I then added a bead of caulking where the boards met and along the sides of each board.
After everything was filled in and dry, it was time to paint.
I’m loving the new look. It’s not perfect, by any means, but I works. I’m loving the new look.
The only items I had to purchase were the adhesive, caulking and paint.
That’s super cheap!
Well, what do you think? Drop me your thoughts below. I can’t wait to hear from you.
I’m linking this project up to some fabulous parties.
