    I absolutely love how you did this project. Now there’s something I really like about your style…it’s a little rustic, a lot pretty, but very neat the whole time. I like the way you did your plank wall neatly. Does that make sense? This is my plan in one of our bedrooms. You sure did a great job!

    • Shayna says:

      AWE! STACEY! THANK YOU so much! I absolutely know what you mean about doing it neatly. I’m a bit OCD, so the tidier and cleaner we can make our projects, the better!
      You will love you plank wall! 😀

  21. Sheryll & Critters. says:

    Oh gosh….. I love this blog/tutorial….. I so want to do the same, but no money at all right now…… but this is great.. I will share it if I can…. great, really great.

  22. What a great tutorial. I would love to try this in my home now. Thank you!

  23. Cate says:

    Hi – this looks so neat and gives such impact! When you attached the boards, did you make sure to nail them into the studs? I am thinking of doing this but am worried that if I don’t attach to the studs they might warp. Thanks!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Cate! I love the planks! Yes, we did make sure to nail several of them into the studs, but we also nailed some straight into the drywall and they’ve all stayed in place really well, no warping! 😀
      I hope that helps!

  25. […] measured and cut a piece of floor underlayment, (the same thing we used for our plank walls: here, here and here) for the […]

  26. This looks so good, it really adds something extra to the room. I also liked the wood look prior to painting. Thanks for sharing this idea!

  27. JAnel says:

    Lovely! Did you prime the wall before painting? How many coats did you do?
    Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much! For the walls, I didn’t prime anything. I just started painting and it took me about 3 coats. I hope that helps! 😀

  28. Maren says:

    I pinned this for later. We also have a breakfast nook and it has had me baffled for five years now. Should I put up curtains….cushions… not sure what the space needed. This is a great idea and one I am now considering for the space that makes me so unsure. Also, I never knew ceilings weren’t perfectly level. Good to know!

  29. Erica says:

    I think the wall looks great! What finish of paint did you use? Flat? eggshell? satin? etc? I am unsure as to what finish to paint mine and wanted your input. Thanks!

  30. […] you, but if you’re new here, we love us some planking. We started by planking the wall in our breakfast nook several years ago, and have slowly continued adding more throughout several rooms in our home. It […]
