Inteplast Accent Planks from Lowe’s can be used in an amazing variety of residential and commercial applications, from standard vertical and horizontal patterns to out-of-the-box disruptive configurations.
Each kit sold at Lowe’s contains 10 planks, enough to cover 15 sq. ft. The kits also come with CommandTM Picture Hanging Strips from 3M for an easy install. The design applications are numerous: focal walls, ceilings, doors, any smooth interior surface. Because they moisture-resistant, they’re especially great for use in high-moisture areas like bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms.

This year marked my first baby steps toward softening my stance on using a product other than wallpaper to create a stunning accent wall. I love that wallpaper can give a wall a three-dimensional look in vibrant patterns, but I found myself drawn to the rustic-chic option of the weathered wood-look. However, I didn’t want to deal with splinters or nail holes all over the wall if I changed my mind. That’s why I chose Inteplast Accent Planks from Lowe’s for my dining room makeover project. Made with a PVC substrate, these Accent Planks are a new product line that is quickly and easily installed with CommandTM Picture Hanging Strips from 3M. Since it’s my turn to host Thanksgiving dinner this year, I wanted to do a quick dining room pick-me up that would put a little punch into our get-together—and these Accent Planks are so easy to install, one person can tackle the job in a weekend.
Collaborating closely with my DIY expert (the hubby), I first explored the brand’s different wood grain finishes—and they have a lot: Sierra Brown, River Grey, Whitewashed Pine, Reclaimed White, and a multicolor kit with an assortment of each. That’s what we used.
The only wall prep we had to do was take down the curtains and curtain rod and wipe down the wall with isopropyl rubbing alcohol.
We laid out our pattern on the floor first, and measured and cut the planks to fit our pattern. We made some of the planks long and some short. The randomness of the lengths gives the wall character.
The installation was a breeze because of the CommandTM strip system. So should the mood take you, you can effortlessly remove and replace the planks and then rearrange them into a completely new pattern—say a herringbone or a chevron. Be careful, there are some comparable products on the market that have self-adhesive backing, but they aren’t removable without doing damage to your walls.
Inteplast Accent Planks from Lowe’s come prefinished and ready to install. You can also cut the planks with regular woodworking tools. The planks are lightweight, which means this was a quick, one-husband-job. And it’s done in plenty of time before the family arrives for Thanksgiving. I’m Jennifer, and thank you for reading. Enjoy your time with your family and friends this holiday.
Hello fellow DIYers, it’s Martin with you this week. I just realized that there are (gulp!) only 53 days until Christmas. That means I have to plan my handsomely homemade gift list now before I run out of time. As you know, I’m very passionate about giving people gifts that I’ve made. For me, it’s a chance to use my hands and my mind to make something unique that connects with an individual friend and family member on a personal level. Wow, that was deep. That and I just really like cutting and nailing stuff. But I know how traumatic it can be when you get a homemade gift from someone and you have no idea what it is…and of course you can’t ask. Well, I promise you, you won’t get that response with these DIY gift ideas. All three of these projects use Inteplast Building Products Accent Planks that you can buy from your local Lowe’s. The reclaimed or weathered wood look is a favorite right now. These Accent Planks can do the job without the splinters or the hammer and nails. If you plan accordingly, you’ve got time to make all three of these for those on your ‘Nice’ list.
Weathered Wood-Look Chalkboard
I’m a huge retro and vintage décor buff, and old-school chalkboards are awesome in my book. A couple of months ago I made this chalkboard message board for my own kitchen, and since then have had numerous requests to make them for others. With the Accent planks, a few other materials, and just a couple of hours of time, you can pull this project off in plenty of time for the holidays. Check out the instructions on Design Next Door here.
Accent Plank Picture Frame Backdrop
This picture frame backdrop made from Inteplast’s Accent Planks adds the same weathered character to any wall in your house as the chalkboard does. The best thing about Inteplast’s Accent Planks is they aren’t permanent. They’re completely removable and replaceable because you use Command Strips by 3M® to install them. I used the multicolor kit for these projects, but you might want to go a little lighter with the whitewashed pine kit. Here are the complete instructions.
Stylish Weathered Spice Rack
I made this for my mom—my favorite cook—because her spice rack…well, she didn’t have a spice rack. She just threw them into her kitchen cabinet in an unorganized mass of bottles and jars. Not only is this spice rack functional, it’s stylish in weathered wood-look Accent Planks. This is the perfect DIY gift for the person in your life who loves to cook. Again, this is a get-it-done-in-a-couple-of-hours project.
I guarantee these DIY gifts won’t get the eye roll or the confused look of what to do with it. With 53 days, you've got plenty of time. For more DIY gift ideas, check out the Design Next Door blog and get inspired. Thanks for reading!
