Accent Wall

Mouldings can be found just about everywhere around the house. Some play a precise role, whereas those of an accent wall offer a (inexpensive) décor option that can be entirely personalized. Nothing quite like an accent wall to showcase a room! See the plan for moulding dimensions and the assembly instructions.

1

Prepare the wall

  • 1.1 - Prepare the wall so that it is clean and smooth, has no holes or bumps.
  • 1.2 - Paint the wall if needed.
  • 1.3 - Sketch out the desired design, taking into account the surface to cover.

Pro tip

If needed, paint the moulding before assembly. Touch ups will be much easier.
When it comes to accent walls, the design possibilities are limitless. All you need is a little imagination.
2

Install the vertical mouldings

  • 2.1 - Measure and cut the vertical mouldings.
  • 2.2 - Consulting the sketch, install the vertical mouldings on the wall. Secure them using a pneumatic nailer.

Pro tip

If the moulding is too short, assemble 2 mouldings cut at a 45° angle.
A thin moulding will give the wall a more delicate look.
3

Assemble the angled mouldings

  • 3.1 - Following the plan, measure and cut the angled mouldings.
  • 3.2 - Place the mouldings on the wall and secure them with the nailer.

Pro tip

The measurements and angles may vary if the height and width of the wall differs.

Add the finishing touches

  • 4.1 - Hide the seams using wood filler or silicone.
  • 4.2 - Touch up the paint if need be.
