Exposed Wooden Lath

Lath and plaster were the wall materials of choice before handy old gypsum wallboard came along. And now, in some homes, it's been revealed to show off the age and material of the structure. Here are a few examples of interiors where old wooden lath was unearthed to make its debut as an interior decor feature:

1 Designer Darryl Carter's modernized farmhouse in Virginia, via Elle Decor.
2 The bathroom from the same house.
3 The texture of lath is celebrated in this uplit bench/wall.
4 This isn't old lath, but the look is emulated in this vestibule designed by Bench Dog Design
