Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for any type of wood or wood-like wall treatment in my house. My previous home definitely had its fair share of walls with farmhouse inspiration and shiplap appearance, so of course I would be crazy if I didn’t include some amazing wood designs on my walls in our new home that are DIY friendly too!

Wood Wall Treatments You Can Do At Home

This! I love this stunning wall and am planning on doing something similar in my oldest’s room. What a fun way to accent a wall! And the best part is that this is something you can completely do yourself. I have seen different methods on achieving this look, so make sure to find the right one for you!

Similar to the last one, this wood accent wall has the Boho vibe, but with one HUGE difference! It’s amazing what a little pop of color will do with wood accents and that subtle wooden hue is no exception. At first I thought the wood was painted gold, but it really is just a wood stain. Either way it is amazing.

Anyone a big farmhouse fan? I love this big wood backdrop that serves as a coat and purse hanger. What a perfect accent wall to complete an entryway or mudroom. One thing I love about walls like these is that it eliminates the need for additional artwork, since the wall is the art.

Traditional wainscoting is one of my favorite ways to accent walls that are neutral colors, or if you want to have two colors in a room that can be separated. I did this in my old living room and in a few bedrooms. It’s easy to do yourself and a great way to accent a space.

Here is another option for wainscoting in a darker color. It adds so much to a wall!

For all of you shiplap lovers… yes, I do include myself in that, I love this reverse shiplap wall treatment. So fun to have a different twist on traditional shiplap.

For anyone who is looking to imitate traditional shiplap, I redid my daughter’s room a few years back and took this faux shiplap approach which only cost me around $100. Such a fun DIY! You can see it here.

If you haven’t jumped on the herringbone bandwagon yet, do it now! Some think herringbone patterns are too bold, but I find this white one to be just right. It’s subtle while still providing a gorgeous display in the room. (source unknown)

Boring white walls are definitely no more! This gorgeous and classic white scalloped wood wall is pretty much the most perfect thing ever for a little girl’s room or a nursery. It almost feels like walking into a fairytale house.

Let’s take another look at the ever-popular herringbone pattern. I love the white up above, but don’t be afraid to try something that shows the natural wood tones. This is a great accent wall for a bedroom and warms up the space with the natural tones of the wood.

I really love this one too!! I love that only a portion of the herringbone is done so it really accents the bed space.

If something really modern strikes your fancy, skinny wooden slats like this one are currently trending with mid-century houses. It definitely creates a different look from the old floor to ceiling wood paneling.
