2018 was a year of accent walls for me…and I sure made a lot of mistakes and learned a lot. Here’s the good, the bad, and the ugly.
GOOD: You can make a huge impact for a small budget.
BAD: The prep work and planning takes 4 times as long as the actual process!
UGLY: Having textured walls makes this SO much more difficult. And skim coating to remove texture is MESSSSSY with dust on every thing and every body part. .
I also learned the differences between working with mdf, pine, and fingerjoint pine boards…as well as putting up backer boards vs skim coating. I learned that when in doubt, you caulk the seems…
Mainly, I LEARNED. I made mistakes. Lots of them. And figured it out. And that’s what is so satisfying about DIY, always learning.

    I have lots of feature walls planned for this year!

  13. @angelarosehome currently, I am having PTSD from dust post new hardwood and brick floors, so I would say yes to backer board for wallpaper. I have personally never done it though. I’m also a fan of being able to change it up easily and often and bb would help with that too. Just my opinion…

  14. @decorbytwo I love it!

  15. @jessica.kesa Since my rooms have doors that I can close off, I just close the door, and then covered all the furniture!
