Accent Wall

I had left over laminate flooring from a past project. I had just enough for a small room and all of my rooms were to large so I decided I would give an accent wall a shot. When I started the project I checked level on the base boards and to my surprise they were level. After some thought I decided to start from the top instead and hide the partial pieces at the bottom and in my haste I found that the overhang portion of the wall was not so level slopping at one end but this was easily corrected. It took me about 6 hours to do the wall and an additional 4 to build and finish the floating shelves inspired by (DIY Pete). The overall reaction to this has been great everyone loves the wall and especially the shelves. It has changed the look of the room completely.

  • What an outstanding final result! So glad to see the before and after shots too- it really does help give an idea of how drastically you improved the look of the room. The floating shelves turned out great- the perfect addition to the wall. Very nice work!
