How to Create a Faux Paneled Accent Wall
Stock trim arranged to mimic paneling adds character to a bland master bedroom without breaking the bank
Sure, the master bedroom rarely gets seen by guests. But that doesn't mean that it—or any of the other upstairs rooms—can't benefit from a little extra architectural charm. This Arts and Crafts-style faux paneling project, created by This Old House readers Lee and Ashli Malinek of Cloverdale, British Columbia, is a budget-friendly, easy way to liven up boring drywall. Try it on an accent wall like the Malineks did, or cover the entire room. All it takes is stock trim, adhesive, and a weekend's worth of work. Soon the bedroom will be the first stop on your house tour.
