Hey everyone! I promised to participate in the 10-10 circle this month so here I am again. It’s been quite a stress to get this post up and running on time but I made it. Enjoy and don’t forget to get going along the, smallish, circle until you come back to my post. (It takes two so you can do this 🙂 )
For this months 10 on 10 I’ll be sharing a project that I finished quite a while ago. When scrolling my phone’s film roll I came across the pics I took of the process. I had this wall in my room that wasn’t finished. Pinterest showed me this wooden wall where you stain a bunch of boards and slam ‘em on your wall. I quite liked that idea so I got to work. This is how it went down.
I chose boards with a width of 8 cm so there would be a nice number of rows. These got chopped up in various lengths.
I mixed two colors in various ratios to create an even colorscheme. They also had to blend in with the floor I want to install.
I spent one week of evenings of staining multiple layers onto the board.
Two sample board with the two plain colors I chose to blend.
Then the weekend came and the fun part began. Half done half satisfied :).
A little bit of black paint was used to cover up holes in the boards. Works like a charm.
At some point you need to cut out some parts. My measurement skills were tested and deemed worthy.
Nearly finished. Just that top part where you can see a white line. On the floor is the electrical tacker I rented for the job.
And that’s it. Done. I am very pleased with the results!
That’s it people. I hope you enjoyed this peek I my room. Maybe I’ve even inspired you? Do you DIY or not?
Also don’t forget to check out what Sam has been up to!
See you next month (or sooner)
