My “UGLY” Wall Project




(Hopefully by the end of the week we will have this finished and I will post better photos!)

My style is primitive, however, I am not a fan of going over board to where my house looks like a craft store. I am in Love with anything old, especially barn boards… LOVE them. So we have this wall in our dining room that we had no clue what to do with. We had thought about just painting it or paneling and then painting. Unsure what to do I did what everyone does these days and surfed the net. Any time I need “design” inspiration the first 2 place I check is Nautical Mountain Design’s blog and CDH Designs Facebook page. Cherie, the owner of CDH Designs and partner in Nautical Mountain designs, is a former co-worker and a good friend of mine, and lets just say when it comes to design, she knows her stuff! Although I had no luck looking for what I wanted for this “UGLY” wall using her design sites, I did get inspired and decided to look into to some wall paper and low and behold I found exactly what I was looking for! This barn beautiful barn board wall paper that I bought at Lowes. Although expensive, very worth it in my opinion. I would love to hear your thoughts on this wall paper and if you ever have a design question make sure to drop by Nautical Mountain Designs and CDH Designs, I’m sure they would be more than happy to assist you.
