Check out this cool wall treatment that “Found This Painted That” did. I hopefully will be able to make a version of my own someday!

Found This Painted That

IMG_0711Tired of the trees, (see before picture below ) I thought I’d try something new.  Image So, I purchased 4 packages of cedar shims from the Home Depot – $7.00 each and started nailing!  I had no idea how this would look finished, but I also knew I could tear them all down if I hated it.  There is mostly only one nail per shim, and I can putty those holes up easily.

Starting in the corner I worked my way across the wall and down, alternating the direction of the shims as I went.  I liked the flawed ones the best and tried to use them as much as possible, sometimes having to overlap them onto one another. Half way down I got very comfortable and was adding pieces willy nilly, having the best time solving the puzzle I called my front entry.
