Square Paneled Wall Treatment

Square-Paneled-Wall-Treatment

About five years ago, we added a square paneled wall treatment to our dining room, and you can see that tutorial HERE. It was the first of many wall treatments we have done over the years, and I do feel like this one will stand the test of time.

It was a medium gray for the first few years of its life.

And then (just like I always do), I decided to switch it up and wanted a change. I painted the square paneled wall treatment off-white (the same color as the trim in the room) to brighten up the dining room.

I have always liked the wall treatment but felt like something was missing. It needed a little more detail, so I decided to fix that and added some additional smaller molding to the inside of each square. It’s all in the details, right?

This wasn’t a hard addition, but it was time consuming cutting each of those interior molding pieces. Although we tried, not one of those squares is exactly the same. Even being off an eighth of an inch makes a difference on this project.

Again, if you are looking for the original tutorial for this wall treatment, you can go HERE to see how we originally created this accent wall (pre additional wall molding).

Once I had the small molding installed, I painted the entire wall treatment in a gray with a green undertone (I know – back to the darker colored wall again). The color is by Benjamin Moore and it is Storm Cloud Gray. It is even more beautiful in person.

I have created several accent walls in our home, and you can see all the details on those HERE.

    Woo hoooooo!!!! I had just settled on this color (98%) and was looking for some designer confirmation, and was so excited when I found this bc I was like, “ok, sincerelysarad, I can trust her taste” and the. I was even more thrilled to see the date 2/2020! So I’m heading in the right direction with this color! Probably would have gone with it even if this post was from 2016, because it is such a pretty color. And now I can with confidence! You don’t know how happy this gem of about article made me! Great job on the accent wall too!

    The additional detail is perfect! What do you think about doing the entire wall? I want to do the center wall in my dining room.

    What’s the small trim called? I’m doing an accent wall in my master bedroom and can’t decide what small trim to add inside the boxes, yours looks great.

    Hi Sara! I am a new follower and I’m so glad I found your instagram account! I am wanting to do a wall like this in our bedroom. I love your style and I’m excited to begin in our room! Just a question about the inside molding you added: is it just cove molding?

    Hi Sara! We’re about to take on a similar project (floor to ceiling panel wall)- quick question… what finish paint did you choose? Satin or Semi gloss? I’ve read satin is becoming the new norm for trim these days and was curious your opinion?
