Planked Paneling & Crown is Up!

Hi, sweets!
Just wanted to check with in ya.
My husband and I have spent the last two days
finally installing the planked paneling
and crown molding in the living room.
I was so torn between
bead board panels or planked panels,
but I’m happy with my decision to
go with the planked look.
It still gives this space the cottage look that I was after.
(We already starting hanging before I remembered to snap a photo.)
  The last of Restoration Hardware’s “Latte” is gone in this room.

{almost} AFTER
I’ll be caulking and painting today
and those seams will disappear.
I love the way it looks
and I’ll get some good photos
when it’s completely finished.
(There’s quite a bit more wall and an archway to the right.)
Happy Wednesday!
Thanks for reading.
Welcome, new sweets.

  1. Hi Jami,

    It’s looking lovely already. What a difference it makes to your space. I love it!

    I hope all is well with you and your husband. Sometimes doing DIY like this does not brng out my best. Haha!!!


  2. Thats looking great already, so can’t wait to see the finished project.

  3. Chris says:

    It is coming together so wonderfully!

  4. Meg says:

    Awesome!! I love this look. And I think you are definitely right about the planks! The bead board would have been too much for a full wall; I think it’s very lovely though as wainscoting. :)

    Happened upon your blog from… another one of those crafty blogs! :) Love it! :)

  5. Jami…it looks amazing! our “next” step is planking…all of the “pre-planking” painting is done! We are both loving the transition to cottage…Mr D and I have had our color issues as well…ha! *L* {with love}

  6. Looking great in the living room Jami! I love how the plank wall came out. Now comes the fun part, putting the room back together!

  7. Looks great. What a lot of work. Can’t wait to see more.

    Looking terrific! I’m guessing you are going to go with a mauve paint and powder blue accents?
    tee hee hee!

  13. Tami / Maddie Lumpkin says:

    Looking great! Can’t wait to see it all put together!

  14. I *love* this! I was hoping to add the same treatment to a few rooms in my home, too. I have been searching for the paneling with no luck. Would you mind sharing your source?

    Thanks for showing it…I can’t wait to see it all done! ;o)

    lookin’ good babes!

  19. Love the look! Can you come to my house and help me refinish all the walls on 3 levels? And I bet you think I’m joking! Hah!

  20. I just love the way it brightened it up and gave it instant character. I can’t even imagine how stunning it will be when it’s all finished!
