Day 943: horizontal paneling
I know the thought of wood paneling on the walls make some of us cringe a little, thinking of the faux wood that was so popular in the sixties and seventies. Heck, we have some in our breakfast room (though thankfully it was painted by the previous owner).
It doesn't stop me from wanting horizontal paneling and from wondering if I could really just slap some 1 x 4s on the wall to get the look (by the way, check out the rest of this Rosemary Beach house here).
This oldie-but-goodie from Southern Accents is what did it for me. It adds just the right touch of farmhouse style.
I see it a lot in bathrooms, so maybe that's a good place to start if you're going the DIY route.
Here's another one from Southern Accents. So what do you think? Yes please! Or do you think it will be the seventies paneling of the next generation?
