the original pin:
how we created this look:
first, we used paint tape to decide how big we wanted our pieces to be:
then we bought 6 eight foot long 1x6 boards from Lowe's and cut them to different lengths. then we stained them so we could get a different color. here is the stain we used:
the stained boards:
then we screwed the boards into the wall- the finished product:
i really love how this project turned out and can't wait to search for fun pieces to decorate it with! it was fairly inexpensive (i think we spent around $80.00) and way cheaper than other things of this size i had looked at for this space. i am mostly happy that i finally had a pinterest success after all my fails and my husband doesn't hate me after my lack of patience when waiting for the stain to dry.
