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 because 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 to help keep them from slipping over time.
Next, I added the second row by using boards from a few other projects. 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 it works.
The only items I had to purchase were 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.
