Today’s the day! I have had floods of comments and emails asking for this DIY Wood Scalloped Wall Tutorial and as promised, here it is!!! This wall treatment is honestly not that hard or terribly time consuming. Not to mention, it’s damage free to the wall! Hello, awesome! Savannah and I created this (and the entire bedroom makeover!) over a space of 4 days and the wall treatment was one of the lesser time consuming parts of the makeover. Honestly, this is one of my favorite projects, probably ever! Heck, I’ll say it… it’s my favorite project EVER! I mean, it’s pretty awesome, right? Materials
- Sharpie Paint Pen (I used gold and it’s amazing!)
- Scrap of cardboard or thick paper to make a stencil
- 1/4″ plywood panels (Home Depot has the perfect plywood for this)
- Jigsaw – I have this one Super inexpensive and did the job quite nicely.
- 3M Mounting Tape
First, follow Savannah’s tutorial for the Gold Sharpie Scalloped Wall. I flipped my scallops the other direction then, I added one more row of scalloping within each scallop. Yep, I cheated and didn’t do behind the headboard because let’s get real, ain’t nobody got time for that. No one is gonna see it so don’t waste your time! 😉 Next, using your smaller scalloped stencil, trace your shape onto the plywood sheets with a pencil. TIP: We used a clamp and did 4 sheets of plywood at once. That way we only had to trace the shapes on the top sheet of plywood and cut four out at once. Once you have all your pieces cut, it’s time to hang them up! Use your mounting tape and stick a 1-2″ piece on the back and hang them up. Here’s a shot of the process as we worked. Once you get all of your pieces cut out, it goes super fast! No nail holes to fill and no damage to your wall but you have an awesome wood wall treatment! This awesome wall earned us 2nd place out of 299 projects in Creating with the Stars and I’m super excited to be the lucky one that got an awesome room makeover with the help of my bestie, Savannah and our sweet friend Mandi from Vintage Revivals. I mean, how many people get to say Mandi helped decorate their room? Booyah! Thanks to both of you girlies for helping me create my dream room! Love you both to pieces! If you love the scalloped look but don’t want to mess with the wood, Savannah’s Gold Sharpie Scalloped Wall is amazing! You can find the DIY Modern Tufted Headboard tutorial here.
