Horizontal paneling or planks seem to be all the rage in design these day.
The look add architectural interest and works well in both traditional
and contemporary spaces.
The bookcases in our great room are really a focal point of the room
so I wanted give them some more texture. I had previously
painted the backs of them in SW Urbane Bronze which was
fine but probably not the right choice for my more traditional
I knew I wanted to add horizontal planks to the back of the book shelves but
also knew I wanted it to be a temporary look just in case
when I tire of it.
I went to Home Depot and had the friendly orange apron clad gentleman
cut a $11.00 piece of sub-flooring into 4 inch planks the width of my book shelves.
I painted everything BM White Dove to match my trim color and simply
mounted the planks to the backs with .......are you ready?
Is it perfect?
However, I achieved the look I wanted for very little cost.
I am thrilled with the results.
Happy Tuesday to you all......
It's a miracle I got this post up today - I took
my little girl to the Justin Bieber concert last night
and momma is suffering from Bieber-fever today!
Definitely a LATE night but so fun to share the
experience with my little daughter! She had
a blast and momma still has ringing in her ears!
