Can you believe it's the first day of August? I'm excited to share a big project reveal today! We're going in the French farmhouse style guest room again today. This was not a planned project, but when I was contacted by a company, that I will share in a minute, my vision for a planked wall came to life. I, like so many of you, love the look of planked walls.
Here is the way it looked before in this recent post. I would not have been posting this room again so quickly, but I have to share this unexpected change.
I want to show you a few different angles of the wall.
I'm so glad I'm married to a handy man and thrilled he was on board with me to do this. Yes, I can bat my eyes at him and he will do whatever I ask.....NOT!
We changed this wall on a Friday afternoon in about 2 1/2 hours.
This wall changed the feeling of the room. Mr. Savvy and I have walked back up the stairs several times just to look at it again.....and he never does that.
I decided to make a change while I was putting the room back together and grabbed these lidded baskets to use as a nightstand. Of course a domino effect took place in the house since moving one thing means moving several others.
One of my old breadboards added to the top makes a sturdy surface for the accessories. This is a good close up of the planks.
Another change I made was switching out the curtains from the plain neutral ones to these cute blue patterned ones from overstock. If you follow me on instagram I shared a sneak peek of these, but had them in the other guest room. I decided to move them to this room and I ordered some different ones for the other room.
The way I found these curtains was through Emily Henderson's blog where she shared a ready made curtain round up. I knew I had to have these especially since they are very affordable and they are lined and weighted. Thanks Emily for sharing these!
I replaced the lidded baskets that were at the foot of the bed with the blue bench from the sun room. See, I told you things have shifted around. The quilt Mr. Savvy's mom made many many years ago sits on the bench. It' is very tattered and torn, but that just makes it better.
Here's a shot at sunset that shows the wall better.
So what do you think about the planked wall?
I bet you are also wondering how we installed it in 2 1/2 hours. Well, do I have a surprise for you. It isn't wood planks! Nope, it's removable, reusable, self adhesive custom canvas wallpaper from Limitless Walls.
Shawn contacted me several weeks ago and asked if I would like to try out the removable wallpaper. At first I thought, wallpaper? We have removed or painted over the wallpaper we had in our home, but the word removable intrigued me so I hopped over to the site to take a look around. There are thousands of wallpapers to choose from or you can have it customized which is what I chose. I asked if we could make it look like a planked wall and after hearing yes, I was sent some samples to look at. This was much easier to install than real planks. Mr. Savvy already has experience hanging wallpaper, but it does take two to do this job. Be sure to check out Limitless Walls for all the information and how it works. You can choose just a mural for one wall or choose a print and do the whole room.
This is the perfect solution for those who rent and can't paint the walls or add real planks.
I would love to do a different print in the other guest room, but I'm afraid when I mentioned that to my handy man he looked at me like I had two heads.

I want to thank Limitless Walls for working with me to create this fun accent wall.
