Dress up White Walls

*Home Depot graciously provided materials for this partnership  project. 

Light, bright interiors have swept the nation. The new, old trend in neutral  home décor can stand the test of time. White paint is customizable and easy to refresh with décor, rather than a large remodeling project.

While monochromatic décor has its perks, it can sometimes seem boring. Adding texture to a white wall can fix this problem and elevate the look of a space. From the soaring popularity of shiplap (thanks to a certain HGTV show)  to classic board and batten, there are so many ways to add texture to plain walls.

FAUX SHIPLAP

A cost effective option to its popular counterpart, faux shiplap is a casual classic great for spaces big and small. Simply strip the boards into 5 or 6 inch pieces, place an old cd in the space between them, adhere them to the wall, and paint them white.

Supplies:

lauan (cut into 5-6 inch strips) h

Note: I chose this kind because it is made with a soy based adhesive that is formaldehyde free.

white paint (we used leftover paint from another project)

cd

nails or your choice of adhesive

Note: Home Depot has a handy Nail Buying Guide to help with size choices.

FAUX BOARD AND BATTEN

Faux board and batten is one of the simplest options in this blog post. Just nail or glue the boards vertically with equal distance between them and paint.

Supplies:

1x2x8 ft. common boards

white paint (we used leftover paint from another project)

nails or your choice of adhesive
