Wainscoting is common wall decor in many traditional homes. However, it can so easily be used homes of any style if you're willing to be a little eclectic.

Installing your own wainscoting can certainly feel like a daunting task but if you're patient and have a week (or few) to dedicate to it — you'll be wiping your brow and cracking a cold one in no time.

There are several ways to achieve the wainscoting look — many simply paint the bottom portion of their wall white and install the chair rails and picture frames. However, Centsational Girl wanted the "obvious contrast" of a smooth service and opted for $12 white panels from Lowes that were cut for free!

The step by step instructions are extremely helpful and can be found at Centsational Girl.
