If you’re trying to achieve that modern, textural, wood wall look, here are some scrap wood walls to consider for your nature loving self. Here, the woodworker has made good use of scrap wood, even though the project was a bit labor intense. But look at the results! It wouldn’t be nearly as attractive if the room was overfilled with furniture and dust catching tchotkes. The sparse furnishings complement the dynamic wall.

The designer/craftsman used scraps of 2 x 4’s ripped into 1/2 to 1 inch thicknesses, ran them through a wood planer so each piece has one smooth surface. He then hot glued them to the wall and used a walnut stain. Ummmmmm, rich, wood, texture.

Next we have a scrap wood exterior wall, but this could be set up indoors just as easily. This version of the scrap wood wall looks rustic AND modern because of its’ horizontally stacked, repurposed boards. Wheels would enable you to move it around as needed for a room divider, a wall behind a sofa or bed, or as after dark privacy in front of a wide expanse of windows.

Now here we have an HGTV scrap wood wall art project that gives you more flexibility. You build a frame, glue in wood shims and stain it. This gives you the same warm, textural look, but you don’t have to be so committed to the entire wall.

And now for the lightweights; here is the beachy scrap wood look, but it’s wallpaper. I prefer the real thing but if you can’t handle the woodworking, get out the wallpaper paste.

Available through Studio Ditte. You’ll enjoy their selection of wall coverings.
