Planked Walls in the Entry

DIY, Projects

    Beautiful! We are halfway through doing a similar look with faux “board and batten” in our entry. We are currently at a painting halt because I can’t decide on the interior door color… Ours is solid, so I’m thinking the black exterior color would be all wrong inside. I’m thinking of just keeping it super white, and use an interior wreath to define it as door… I don’t know,,, but this is just beautiful!

    I, too, love planked walls. I added them as wainscoting in my living room and would like to add them elsewhere. I worry about having to rip them down in 6-10 years. Do you think it’s a trend or it’s more classic like beadboard and batten & board and there isn’t going to be some mass ripping out across America?

      I know exactly what you mean, Janet. Anthony asks me this every time we install another wall in the house. I do think plank walls are very hot right now, but I look to see them last over time. They are classic, just like beadboard and board and batten. I don’t think they’re going anywhere. 🙂

    Love the plank walls!!

    I loved the stripes, but adore the crisp, fresh new look as well.

  6. The new plank walls look great, especially with the black door. That is such a nice large and open space. Our front hall is not very big. We painted the inside of our front door black several years ago (and the outside black last year) and I still love it. Looking forward to seeing how you style everything as time permits.

    Love the planked walls, you made a good decision! I too painted your double entry doors black … love the look!

    Looks great! I am planning to do this in our son’s bathroom – the walls are covered in 1940’s beige tile that HAS to go!

  9. Oh those walls are so gorgeous and crisp! Wonderful choice! And I love love love the black door!

    I am looking to add a plank wall in our dining room and bathroom. Did you follow a certain post on how to do these? I have read some and it seems as though there are many different DIY methods. Thanks!

    I own a craftsman cottage in a small town. All the walls are ship lap covered with dry wall. In some places the walls are poorly installed. Your pictures have given me hope that I can remove some “new walls” to expose the old ones. How refreshing to see that you understand the beauty of this type of design. Thanks.
