Customer Feature: Installing a Barn Wood Accent Wall With Cindy

We can all agree that barn wood accent walls are beautiful and can add a unique touch to your home decoration or business set up, right?. Not only an architectural feature, accent walls can also add warmth and character to your living space.

This week we received a BEAUTIFUL project update from our customer and neighbor Cindy R! In this project, Cindy added a reclaimed wood accent wall to their home’s living room. With the help of two neighbors, Cindy installed a full wall in a total of seven hours and just two days! That is what we call teamwork 😍

Let’s take a look at the accent wall installation process, shall we?

The space before adding the wood wall:

The living room was pretty cute and cozy before! However, the gray wall added a cold feel to the room.

The wood panels arrival:

Our wood panels arrived! Our panels are sold in kits of 15 square feet, and the minimum order is 30 square feet. The reclaimed wood panels come in widths of three, five, or seven inches, and in random lengths, so you have more flexibility to create the pattern you want!

  • Make sure to measure your wall’s square footage before ordering your kits. The formula is width x hight = square footage

 

Wall Preparation:

Before placing your reclaimed wood wall panels, it is a good idea to paint the wall in a dark color (or a color that matches the wood specie you picked for your wall). This way, nobody will notice possible small gaps between the wood panels 😉. Good job, Cindy!

When installing your wood planks, make sure you have the correct measurements and are considering elements that you do not want to be covered, such as heating systems and light switches. Cindy also marked the wall for reference and to help her place the different plank widths and create the pattern she wanted.
