Erica inherited a living room with a sponge-painted fireplace and an olive paint job. She had planned a pallet wall, but realized the time (and tools) it would take was not realistic. Until she found a quicker solution:
After hunting down a few pallets, I realized that the effort and time (and tools that we didn't have) to find, dismantle, sand, wash, and then nail the boards to the wall just wasn't worth it. I was downtrodden until I discovered Stikwood!
Stikwood is real wood planks that are cut thin and have adhesive backing. Simply peel and stick and voila! Instant pallet wall with all the charm and half the work. We met a few tricky areas when it came to the fireplace molding and the outlets, but we rigged up a special solution to get around those hard areas that can be seen on my blog post.
It only took us one Saturday to complete and the end result is simply stunning! Gone are the eyesore colors and hello gorgeous! We now have a beautiful front room to relax in and host guests. It's classic, neutral, and much easier on the eyes. I'm so happy with how it turned out and I know we will love it for years to come!
