Hanging Boards On Walls For Unique Decor

Spread the love

Have you ever wanted to added a little texture or just a little something different to one of the walls in a room in your house? Why not decorate with boards? You could either do a whole wall or just a partial space for a fun accent. I found some examples to inspire you and get you thinking about your own space.

Inspiration For Wood Walls

Use Barnwood On An Accent Wall

This first example shows what we did with one entire wall in our basement game room. Lucky for us, we knew someone who was tearing down an old barn. All we had to do was tear down the barn wood pieces that we wanted and haul them home. We then cleaned them and cut them to size. It was then just a matter of nailing them in place to the drywall. We trimmed out the top and bottom of the wall with long pieces of barn wood for a finished look. The best part about this project was that it was totally free!

Barn wood is naturally rustic so it complements a rustic decor very nicely. You could even do just part of a wall if you have a smaller supply of wood.

Use Pallet Boards For A Small Area

Here is another great example from Kelly Simon Says. Pallet boards make a wonderful canvas for artwork. I just love this. Check out her tutorial to see how she put together this great design.

  1. about the pallets, i understand you have to do some kind of treatments first before using them? because sometine they transport things that may be harmful for us, do you know something about this?
    thank you!

    1. Whenever I bring any type of used wood into the house, I make sure to sand and clean with bleach to remove bacteria. However, if a pallet has been chemically treated or used to carry harmful chemicals, I don’t know of any treatment that you can do. I would not use those particular pallets. Heat treated pallets with the stamp “HT” are the best. For tips on knowing how to pick your pallets and where to use them, check out this link from Funky Junk Interiors – http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/2011/04/all-you-ever-wanted-to-know-about.html
