Teaming up with several blogging buddies for a DIY Home Improvement Challenge. our host is my sweet friend Terrie, from Decorating and More with Tip!

I have had plenty of time to think about design elements for our barndominium master bedroom! I toyed with the idea of a geometric wood wall but I was unsure! After talking with a couple of my interior design buddies, I decided to just go for it!!

Paint 

After we installed the trim, we painted the accent wall. This will save time once the accent wall is installed. 

We painted the wall Orchid by Sherwin Williams in an eggshell finish. We use Free Form Paint Brushes. You can use SWEETSOUTHERN15 for 15% off!

Time to Install the Geometric Wall

Stick with 45 and 90-degree angles! we only used 20 furring boards! We spent less than $50 on this wall!

We decided to start with the right hand side of the wall. Honestly, we decided to just hold boards up at different angles, with various spacing ,to see what looked right. Next we leveled and nailed as we placed the boards on the wall!

Once we got into a groove, the install went really fast and ended up being a really fun project. It took us a couple nights because we ran out of boards! it could easily be done in a day to complete!

Time to Caulk 

Time to caulk the seams and wood putty the nail holes!

I caulked along the seams where the boards meet the wall, using two tubes of tubes of caulk.

I also sanded a few of my boards as they were rough! And once the caulk is dry….

This part of the project gets a little tedious because you have to apply the rest of the paint with a brush!

Make sure you get into every nook and cranny. I used a craft brush in the really tight spots where my boards met with an adjacent wall or the trim. You’ll definitely want to brush on two coats. 

Once your paint is dry, you’re done! Now you can style your room and enjoy!
