A few months ago, I shared our living room makeover (you can see all the details on that makeover HERE).  The makeover included a paneled wall – one of my favorite projects to date!

Since moving into our home, I have struggled with what to do with the inset walls.  However, I didn’t want to build bookshelves since we have a huge wall of shelves in the next room.  I wanted the inset to appear more special, so this DIY detailed paneling was perfect for the space.  It adds interested without taking away from the fireplace (the focal point).

I wanted to give my family room an entirely new look, and this DIY paneled wall makes such an elegant statement.  I do not claim to be a woodworker, but I am pleased with the result and spent around $300.  You can see the full detailed tutorial over at Remodelaholic.

Here is the before:

I stenciled the wall early on to add some interest, and I am glad it was paint instead of wallpaper.  I was able to just paint right over the pattern!

The progress:

Caulk is your friend in this project – notice the gaps.

And the after!

I did this wall treatment entirely solo, so I promise it is a DIY project you can do as well!  See the full tutorial on Remodelaholic.
