5 DIY Wood Plank Decorating Ideas & Giveaway is all about transforming a space with affordable stained wood. I hope you enjoy all 5 of my DIY Wood Plank Decorating Ideas and then top it all off with a fabulous giveaway at the end for all wood plank DIYers!
We have this very tenacious, redheaded woodpecker that pecks on the side of our bedroom wall early in the morning. It is very loud and actually sounds like he’s pecking on metal 😖. I swear, one of these mornings he’s going to break in and fly right into our bedroom! Then again, I honestly can’t blame him. I mean if I was him, I would want in, too. He is a WOOD-pecker, after all.
It’s been a while since I wrote about all the affordable DIY wood projects in our house, and now seems like the perfect time to bring them all together because I just happened to gain access to an incredibly helpful book my friend Carrie from Lovely Etc. wrote, and it’s packed full of DIY wood plank project tutorials for your home & garden. So, be sure to enter the free giveaway at the end of this post just by leaving a comment on which wood plank project is your favorite…
5 Wood Plank Decorating Ideas
#1 So, here’s my most popular wood plank project and still my all-time favorite room in the house. I actually find staring at wood planks to be relaxing. Is that odd? Well, I think you need to try it sometime and see for yourself 😉. My husband and I wrote a very detailed tutorial on how we created this incredible wood planked ceiling here:
#2 We loved the feel of our new cozy romantic bedroom so much that we decided to spread the love. We ended up doing our master bathroom wall. Let me tell you, the wall is much easier than the ceiling because you don’t have gravity working against you.
We have since remodeled our master bathroom and kept the wood wall in tact, and in fact was able to extend it all the way to the floor. If I had a “look” that I would call “mine”…this would be it. I absolutely love the combination of rustic, glam, and modern. Can you find all 3 in this photo below?
Here’s both the original wood plank wall tutorial and our master bathroom remodel that took place after, just in case you are interested in both.
#3 This was my husband’s idea! I was so impressed when Richard thought up this idea below where we added stained wood planks to the wall where his big mirror was going because the drywall there was too weak to hold his mirror. There use to be a glass block window there, so we needed something more than a molly could do. Adding wood solved the problem, and looked absolutely fantastic. Then I jumped on that wood wagon with Rick, and asked him to spread it into the shower area. He obliged 😉. Here’s all the specific deets…
#4 Next up, is in the laundry room where I live, I mean do the laundry. We hung a Tongue & Groove Wood Siding Wall that is actually pine wood that is made to fit together. I really wish my laundry room looked spiffy like this all the time.
5. Lastly, the stained wood planks we attached to our front living room wall. This idea came to me when I saw something similar in a Pottery Barn Magazine. My husband thought it was a little risky and different, but I like risky and different…don’t you? Eventually, we carried the stained wood through to the shelves, and even hung rustic light fixtures on the planks. Here’s all 3 ideas for you to check out:
