{friday finds: horizontal plank walls}


 

House Beautiful April 2010

My love affair with horizontal plank walls began in 2010 when I saw this House Beautiful Magazine cover. The width of the planks and soft whitewashed finish on the pine planks looked crazy good to me. The three blue paintings replicating the horizontal lines of the planks made this corner the pièce de résistance in this gorgeous home.

Four years later I’m still crushing on plank walls, but know (and accept) this DIY project will not be happening in my house. My walls are plaster and I won’t go there.

The DIY bloggers who’ve put up their own plank walls make it seem like a manageable project. Painted, stained, or whitewashed, plank walls add anther layer of texture and interest to a room. Enjoy the photos – they may even inspire you to try your own DIY project.

 If you can’t muster up your inner DIY DIVA there are quite a few wallpapers which look like wood planks;  this Thibaut paper is one of the better looking patterns.

Aren’t these rooms the best? I love the element of “unexpected” in a room. Most photos are from DIY’ers and the links will bring you to details of the install. We’d love to see photos of your DIY projects.

Have a fantastic weekend!

    It’s very straightforward to find out any topic on web
    as compared to textbooks, as I found this article at this web page.
