Ashli and Lee Malinek loved the Arts and Crafts-style wainscot
in their front entry and downstairs study of their builder spec house. But the second floor, and their master bedroom in particular, lacked any similar flourish.
So after spotting ½
×4 MDF trim for a song at the home center, the couple decided to tackle a DIY version of the downstairs paneling for the wall behind their bed. Lee took measurements, made sketches, and mocked up a few configurations on the wall before they settled on the five-panel design shown here.
