Hello there, it’s Andrea here with you this week. Are you one of those commitment-phobics when it comes to home décor? You know who you are. You hate the idea of painting an entire room because four days later you won’t like the color. Or you return light fixtures before you even take them out of the box because they’re so last year. Well these new Accent Planks from Inteplast Building Products might just be the one home décor product you can live with. They’re modern, fresh and versatile. For those who have ever wanted to try a weathered wood accent wall headboard, check out how easy it is to do with the Accent Planks that you can purchase from your local Lowe’s.
First Step: Determine the size of your headboard
Based on the size of your bed, determine the width and height you want your headboard to be before purchasing the Accent Planks so you’ll know how many pieces you need. Each kit covers 15 square feet and includes ten 4.5” x 4’ planks. I would suggest cutting a thin piece of plywood the size you want the headboard to be, and attach that to the wall to apply your Accent Planks to.
Second Step: Choose a color (this is the fun part)
Inteplast Accent Planks come in four colors: Sierra Brown, River Grey, Reclaimed White, and Whitewashed Pine. Or you can choose the Multicolor kit which include 4 Sierra Brown, 3 River Grey, and 3 Reclaimed White planks.
Third Step: Measure and Cut
Once you know the dimensions of your headboard, cut the planks in a variety of lengths for maximum uniqueness.
Fourth Step: Install
This is the easy part. Minimal to no wall prep needed. Just follow the fast and easy installation instructions. Using a light construction adhesive instead of the included 3M Command Strips attach the Accent Planks to the plywood you cut. You can create a variety of patterns, including herringbone, vertical, or horizontal. Be as creative as you want!
Fourth Step: Frame the Planks
Using Inteplast Building Products prefinished decorative moulding in a variety of colors and profiles—also available at Lowe’s—create a finished look to your new headboard. Now, isn’t that a gorgeous look you can live (and sleep) with?
In addition to a headboard, you can create custom, accented walls throughout your house—inviting entry ways, out-of-the-box splash guards, and stand-out accent walls. And hammer and nails required! Thank you for reading. Until next time, I’m Andrea.
