13 Delightfully Wood Accent Wall Ideas

You know how every once in awhile you have one of those DIY projects or crafts that you JUST KNOW is not going to go as planned? Well, that's not one of these. 

Nope. No Way. No how....because ladies and perhaps, gents, I stained the playroom plank wall and much to my surprise it wasn't a disaster. A matter of fact, it came out wayyy better than I could have imagined.

Sorry, for the in- progress pics but I promise to share complete pictures of the project soon, along with my stain color and technique (it was a mixture of a few things).

I just wanted to drop in to share some updates on the play room. Well, that, and to scream from the mountain tops that I LURVE how the accent wall is coming along so far. I was aiming for a "driftwood" color and I'm pretty darn happy with the results. I promise these pics don't even do the color justice because in person I want to keep staring and petting the planks, splinters and all.

It's always been my dream to live in a home with a pretty attic space, ya know, one that doesn't share rent with a raccoon or spider webs.
