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?

I absolutley love this!! Glad the other person commented on how to age it if it were bought new!

I love it!  I can see adding some feminine stuff for a little girl!  Or a faux fishing pole and fun boy stuff!  Great idea.  You can age wood with baking soda and vinegar if you are unsure how safe the pallet wood is.  At our business we get untreated palettes and now I have a great idea for a room!

 

Rough wood, whether treated or not, seems a bit scary to me in any childs room. Splinters alone could be a big problem. It does look pretty awesome though more fit for a "man cave" in  my opinion.
