It's time! Today, I'm revealing our wood wall project!
A few weeks ago we started and completed this wood wall project. I'm so grateful for the help of my husband and my brother. They really made this wall come together. A few weeks ago I shared about the beginning of our project and this week I shared about the natural DIY wood stain we used to stain all of the wood and why we decided not to break down pallets for this wall.
The project took us about a week to complete. That included staining 65 or more 1 x 4's , cutting the wood and nailing to the wall. Once the wood was stained and cut everything else moved very quickly.
We stained all of the wood before cutting each piece of wood into thirds. After the wood was cut, we had to go back and stain the ends on some of the pieces of wood. It was a pain at first but definitely worth it.
We also painted the wall black before adding the wood. This helped hide any gaps in the wood. I'm so happy we did this because as the wood settles on the wall little gaps do appear but you can't see them because of the black paint.
We originally planned on nailing 5 vertical boards to the wall and then nailing our pallets to the vertical boards. I saw this idea on Pinterest but we decided to not to do this. We even bought the boards and prepped them but when we put one of the boards up it made the wood stick out to far and it just looked funny. So instead we found the studs in the wall and nailed the wood into the studs using a nail gun. A nail gun is a MUST for this project!
So here it is! Our completed wood wall and my favorite wall in our home!
