Happy Tuesday! I'm excited to share part two of my Home Depot style challenge, which is live on the Home Depot blog today.
I was assigned Millwork as my material, which was so fun because I have had this paneled wall idea in my head for awhile now. I first saw it in the Serena & Lilly catalog and absolutely loved how it transformed a normal, boring wall into a space with so much interest!
I decided to do the paneling on the staircase wall because I wasn't happy with the navy color I painted it last year (ha!). I love the navy pop, but didn't like it bumping up to the gray color of my other downstairs walls. So, I decided to brighten up the staircase by adding square paneling and painting it white.
Next, we filled in the horizontal pieces, coming out from the staircase moulding. We used a nailgun to secure the pieces, then filled the nail holes with wood putty and caulked each piece to avoid seams & cracks.
I absolutely love how this project turned out. You can hang things in each square depending on the season (like these boxwood wreaths - SO cute), which is so fun. I will probably keep it blank and clean for most of the year, but my eventual goal is to fill each square with a different piece of artwork.
Thanks to The Home Depot, both our exterior and interior are Christmas-ready! Click HERE to see part one.
