We thought it would be fun to give Hallie’s room a little refresh while we are all penned up in the house. Since we are trying to lie low during this whole virus debacle due to my health issues, we thought we would just use things that we have on hand to refresh her space, that way we wouldn’t need to go to the store. Here is a little “before” shot…
Luckily we had these extra peel and stick boards from Timber Chic. They were leftovers from our last project that we used them for. These are the color “coastal white” in size 5″.
Hallie doesn’t really love change, so it was tough for her to imagine how the final design would look, but she was up for a little room mix up/refresh. Her room was already really cute, but this gave us something fun to do together!
We thought that we would get rid of her valances that we had made, but we loved them so much with the wood wall that we kept them. You can see the last refresh that we did in her room, here, along with a diy valance tutorial.
The Timber Chic boards are super easy to apply! We used them in our master bedroom, our master closet, and in a room makeover that we did for our associate pastor’s daughters room. We also hung the beds from the ceiling in the makeover room. I’m still amazed! If you haven’t seen it, you can find it, here.
Some of the questions that I receive about these Timber Chic boards are:
- Do they fall off once you apply them? Absolutely not, they stick like mad!
- Will they ruin your wall if you want to take them off some day? I’m not sure because I’ve never taken mine off, but they do stick really well, so I’m guessing it would be quite the process to take them down. If a change would ever be desired, they could always be painted a different color.
- What color and size do you have? Mine are the color “coastal white” in size 5″ width.
- Can they be cut? Yes, they can be cut just like any other board. They actually need to be cut to go around windows, edges of the wall, outlets, etc.
- Are they easy to apply? Yes…one of the easiest wall treatments that we’ve ever done.
- Do they come precut? Yes, they come precut in various sizes and you just make the pattern that you would like with the various colors and sizes as you apply the boards.
We made these shelves for Hallie’s wall years ago. I love how easy and budget friendly they are!
We made this “mood board” with some cork board and an old frame. Hallie painted it and used 100 grit sandpaper to distress it a little and then we cut the cork board to fit inside the frame. We used a heavy duty staple gun to add fabric to the cork board and then stapled the cork into the back side of the frame to hold it in place in the frame. It’s such a fun place for her to add things that she loves! A tip for budget friendly cork board is to find an old one at a thrift store and just cut it up for your project. That’s what I do every time we make these, and we’ve made several.
This sign was made by Hampton Repurposed Wood. It was something that Hallie chose a while ago. I love the rustic, reclaimed wood signs that Sandy makes! We also decided to go without a rug for now. It may be something that we add in the future, but for now, we love the simplicity of no rug.
I would love to hear in the comments what you think of Hallie’s little room refresh that we did. It was a fun project to tackle together!
