If you're a city dweller with an appetite for rustic decor, you'll want in on this affordable cabin-inspired DIY! After purchasing their 1950s ranch home, Cape 27 blogger Jessie and her husband, Rick, decided to take a design risk by adding wood paneling. While this might seem like a counterintuitive way to update a midcentury ranch, Jessie and Rick prove it can be done — and done well.
What makes this DIY so affordable? The free wooden pallets! This crafty couple insists that freebies are easy to find at stores like Lowe's, Home Depot, and Ikea. While the tedious task of disassembling the pallets and giving them a deep cleaning is no picnic, the rest is said to be "smooth sailing."
We love the luxe-cabin vibe that the new wall introduces. It's a smart accent wall option if you're looking to get out of a paint rut. Check out Jessie and Rick's pallet wall tutorial to snag the look for your own home!
