All we did was cut the beadboard to the height we wanted, but some liquid nails adhesive on the back, adhere to the wall, with a few finishing nails… and that’s it!
I couldn’t decide if I wanted to do beadboard paneling in the kitchen, or in the living room. But since our living room… kinda’ IS in the kitchen, I opted on putting it there. lol. Plus, I love beadboard because its a great way to fill a wall space.
I’m LOVING the way this is turning out!
My brother Mike brought over this AMAZING little tool that has this vibrating blade, and it cuts out the light socket holes in NO TIME!…. If you’ve EVER put up any kind of paneling, then you KNOW that this part of the job is a JOKE, but with this tool it was so easy!
We finished putting up this wall about a week or two ago, and it’s just been sitting there… waiting for the finishing touches.
I just got done puttying it all up, and now I’m heading up to paint. This project still has a ways to go, but it’s getting there!!!!
K, here is a little peek at what is going on TOP of the beadboard. It’s going to have this chunky molding… and then we’re gonna build a shelf on top of that! I can’t wait!
So, whenever I do a project, I have an inspiration. This time it was this picture from The Lettered Cottage
I love this blog! Layla and Kevin have done some MOST amazing things! I could spend hours here looking around.
So, anyway, I love this dining room that she did, and so I did a big copy cat of it…. switching mine up a bit, with the larger panel. But TOTALLY took her advice, when it came to my new paint color.
She used a paint color called Rice Grain, from Sherwin Williams….which was a little too expensive for my blood, so I just took the swatch, and color matched it at Home Depot…. and wa-la!
Glidden’s Autumn Harvest…
Totally the SAME color! No joke… and about $15 a can cheaper!
This is the first color that I’ve actually taken… from someone online, and LOVED! So… Thank you Layla!
