DIY: Picture Frame Wainscoting

By |2022-01-12T13:59:02+00:00December 20th, 2021|Design|

I recently moved upstate into a house with Very Boring Walls: bare except for the baseboards and some generic moldings around the doors and windows. The walls were beige and mint, and looked cookie-cutter and boxy, which — in this early aughts saltbox pre-fab — they were. They needed personality. So, with no previous experience and having never before used a saw, I decided to add some wainscoting. I had a tiny budget and no professional help, but installation was easy enough. The finished effect gave the walls texture and allowed for more color, pattern, and finishing options for each room. In short, they look incredible, and now the rooms practically beg for martini hour.

A small footprint with a big impression, the Hubert A-Frame takes its cues from Mother Nature. With a color palette that blends into the forest unless you are right up on it, the birch wood interior also blurs seamlessly into the views beyond. Standing tall with a compact 250 square foot interior, the thing that sticks with you is the carefully crafted use of space. Design elements are crucial in creating a functional modern cabin. The kitchen features size appropriate appliances, including a fridge and Cuisinart double induction cooktop with compatible stoneware pan set.
