Instead of the run-of-the-mill baby nurseries that are in every catalog out there, this mom-to-be wanted her little guy's nursery to have something extra that would stand out and grow up with the baby. That called for something a little more masculine than Winnie the Pooh. Using untreated pallet lumber and a good deal of problem solving, this nursery on the Bower Power Blog has a rustic and awesome accent wall. Because the wood was free and they had a gift card on hand, it was a whopping $15!
The minds behind this baby room can't emphasize enough the need for safe pallet lumber for this project, especially since it is a baby's room. If it still makes you nervous, this same look can be replicated with brand new wood that you rough up a bit.
But... Wood Paneling??? Isn't that what everyone is ripping out of their houses these days? Personally, I think it is the rustic, mis-matched, horizontal look that completely separates this accent wall from your grandma's wood paneled walls. What do you think?
