Wall paneling , check that off the list

Well happy Saturday morning all, I wanted to share with you my finished living room wall , I completed it last night after much painting , my wonderful cousin saved the day and cut me a 4" wide strips of MDF so I could complete the wall , I am so grateful to him , he even picked up and delivered , I have great family, thanks Scott.

This makes the room feel larger which is a little bonus , I decided to scrap the shelf above the sofa , its always nice to change things up ...I have been craving a simplified look lately as well.



Here you can see where I just extended the horizontal lines of the existing trim to create the proportions of the paneling , everything looks great on a clean white backdrop , the white as always is Popped Corn by Behr in satin.




I am happy with this new addition , there is one thing not lacking in my house and that's character and MDF ok that's two things.

Turned out beautifully. I like that you decided to go with multi square paneling. I to have a high ceilings in one room. This may be the trick to add a little drama.

That looks fabulous Chris, especially with the height of that wall and the continuation from the stair moulding. If you ever decide to sell your home, it won't be on the market for a whole day.

That looks wonderful - and as if it has always been there! Really professional.

What's next? are you working your way round the room?

You are too much!! I would love to have just an ounce of your skill!!!! Did you put mdf sheets on the back or did you skip that step and just paint the wall?
