We would all like to forget the cheap plywood paneling of the ’70’s and with good reason. But we can still have wood in our homes today and bring in the feel of natural materials and upscale styling, without the upscale price! How? DIY wood walls! Whether you use re-purposed wood or new materials, follow these step by step instructions and get ideas from these DIY wood wall projects.

Just a Girl blog made this wonderful DIY pallet wall, and she has a two part instruction page. I love how she embraces the imperfections, I’m all about that!

Now that you have the basics of putting up a wood wall, you need more than that. Life, Crafts and Whatever gives you just that… The tips. More clever little tips than you knew existed for nailing some old boards in a wall. And obviously he knows what he’s talking about. Look at his wall. :)

At Owen’s Olivia they created a whitewashed pallet wall with a gallery shelf for their little boys’ room, and it looks really great.  Amazing how a free material can look so high end, isn’t it?

So this next photo is not a DIY project unless you make it one… It is a product we found that is an amazing helper to the DIY’er. (And no, we do not get anything for saying so!) It’s called Stikwood, and it pretty much is what it says. It’s a peel and stick REAL wood wall. Or whatever you want to stick it to, that is. Reclaimed wood thats like a giant DIY sticker. How fun is that?

Pallet walls don’t have to be all brown!

Lastly, it doesn’t have to be a boring pattern either. This herringbone pattern proves that! Don’t be afraid to go a step beyond paint if you want a really special home!

  1. I just had my husband do the wood panel wall in my dining room. I love your great ideas!

  2. Our pallet wood screen porch.

    • Kathy Woodard says:

      Hi Bruce! Wow! I would have never even guessed that was a porch! Amazing project! Can we link to your Facebook page so our readers can see how you did it?

  3. i would love to see the pallet wooden screen porch. It’s okay to brag on yourself once in a while. Those that brag often are often thrown into the 5 day garbage pile. Lol

  4. These are nice ideas for giving some wood-looking appearance to the home. BTW, do we have to apply some termite resistant thing on these rusty pallets after installation? The first pic that you shared. Looks good and I am planning something similar for the the living room.
