Before & After: DIY Wall Paneling Project…..all for only $75!


Hats off to my client, Jenny and her husband Eric! These two make a great team, especially when it comes to d.i.y.-ing around their own home!

Today I’m going to allow you a sneak peek of their master bedroom make over, to introduce to you one of their latest d.i.y. projects. This particular project was inspired by a post on the amazingly-talented Emily Clark’s blog that featured a paneled headboard tutorial by Jenny of Evolution of Style!

After meeting with my client, Jenny, in the beginning stages of her master bedroom makeover, she said to me…..”I think I’d like to try that paneling project that was featured on Emily Clark’s blog…..” I encouraged her to go for it….and here are the fabulous results…

Quite a big impact for only $75, don’t you agree? The new paneling gives the room such a clean, classic look! And isn’t the wall color beautiful? It’s Nickel by Pratt & Lambert.

You can check out more of Jenny’s DIY projects on her fabulous new blog Modern Maizy.

As I said, this bedroom is still in the midst of a makeover…but I will be sure to post the end result as soon as it’s complete!
