Learn how to install wood slats on a wall. This DIY guide helps you to create vertical wood slat accent walls with minimum tools and experience. In this project, we combine wood slats with concrete-style panels to create an industrial look. Follow our step-by-step guide to create yours!
Taping the edges is unnecessary since the panels will conceal them. When it comes to the paint, your colour choice should complement the wood and enhance its appearance. Top options include warm hues (yellow, orange, or red), natural tones (green, grey, or brown), pastel, or black.
For this project, you can use painted MDF panels or pre-cut mouldings. We chose laminated pine slats with 1” spacing.
