The nursery is moving right along, and thankfully so, considering our little guy is due to arrive in just over a month now. When Lizzy moved into a shared room with Zoey we emptied out most of the items, but the rest has now found it’s way into the dining room, garage, and anywhere else we could temporarily squeeze things in. Once completely cleared, Ricky laid down rosin paper to protect the floors and taped off the closet with a plastic barrier (it was filled with nursery items). As for the planked walls, we followed this tutorial almost to-a-tee, so I won’t go into the details (just follow the link for an in-depth walk-through). SW-Snowbound on all the walls and trim (a bright, but not stark, white) and SW-Lighter Mint on the ceiling (a pale mint with a touch of blue). I was a little fearful that adding the wood planks to all the walls might make the room feel even smaller than it is, or that all the crazy horizontal lines going on would get distracting, but I’ve found quite the opposite. I was also always under the impression that I loved the craftsman trim and the crown moldings throughout the rest of our home because their bright white color popped against our gray walls – not the case.
I still need to do a few touch ups around the window, as well as empty the closet and give it a fresh coat of paint, but for the most part, we’re moving onto the fun stuff! I have seen the planked wall trend take off and increase in popularity dramatically recently.
When school ended in June we stopped working on the house remodel completely so that we could have a “normal” summer when the kids were home and underfoot.  And now that start of school is less than a week away, we plan to FINALLY finish up all the loose ends. While my husband and son put the planks on the ceiling, I followed behind them with the painter’s caulk and filled some of the bigger cracks and knot holes in the wood to give it a smoother, less rustic look.  The process was pretty tedious but so worth it for the finished product! Just last weekend, we began using the same paneling as in this post to cover our popcorn ceiling in the living room.
Hi Beth, thanks so much for your post, it’s great to have a place where we can find good techniques and help from real people.


Good luck to you too with the rest of your ceilings and I’ll look into getting a nail gun!!
We hung curtains we bought at IKEA and an old stained glass window (a gift from my sister and one of my favorite things). Oh, and I did get my repaired slipcover back from the seamstress.  I will share more details in another post soon. I unpacked my vintage calendars, illustrations, and miniature horses and decided they needed to live on top of my dresser.

We are planning a dinner party for one day this winter (maybe a potluck), and you and Ray are most definitely on the guest list, Jenny! For us, this meant covering the existing popcorn ceiling with new smooth drywall, adding horizontal wood planks to all the walls, trimming out the window and closet opening, re-installing baseboards, adding crown molding, and finally, painting all of it. The decision to cover our inherited popcorn ceilings was something we’ve always wanted to do.
I think the bright white makes more of an impact than the actual wood itself, opening up the room even more. I’m working on the dresser as we speak (!) and the arm chair has been making itself right at home in our living room for weeks. I always use a no-VOC paint while pregnant, and for anything going in our house that can’t be aired out for several days.

Give me a minute to catch my breath and take a couple of deep breaths to slow my heart down!!


I love a bold ceiling, but in this space, we just wanted a hint of mint to compliment the brighter colors we’ll be using elsewhere.
My research has shown that the items in a room (furniture, curtains, etc.) are more likely to encourage a fire to burn than either dry wall or wood. The planks have had some bowing in spots, particularly against the one exterior wall where the temperature fluctuates more.
Plus, the rest of the home has all smooth ceilings, so eventually covering the bedrooms to match was in the plans since day one. You can barely see in the photo above, seams about 2′ off the corner at every other board (just along the wall without the door). A few extra nails fixes it right up though, since the wood is so thin and easily shaped back into place. I know how much work it must have been so I hope you can sit back and enjoy it now that it is done. You’ve put a lot of yourselves in this very personal space and it turned out marvelous! Although we have different plans for the other bedrooms, in here, we opted to just go over them with a thin new layer of drywall.
