If anyone is looking for fall home-decor inspiration, look no further than this amazing wood paneled wall by Lindsay and her husband, Drew. Using planks of beautiful alder wood and a combination of wood conditioner and a dark stain, Drew created an incredibly rich, dramatic accent wall for their bedroom. I love the combination of the tan houndstooth headboard with the warm wood, and I think I could just sit and stare at that beautiful wall all day. Wonderful job, Lindsay and Drew! — Kate

Time: 2 days
Cost: $600 (including wood, hardware, conditioner and stain)
Basic Steps: My husband, Drew, preconditioned the knotty alder wood, then stained it with two coats of sealer, sanding it smooth between each coat. Then he cut each plank to size and nailed them onto the wall. He mitered the edges to return into the windows, and installed the panels one by one. Voila!
If you’re looking to do this accent wall yourself, DO NOT SKIP THE PRECONDITIONER . . . This helps the stain to penetrate the wood evenly and prevents blotches or spots where the stain penetrates deeper/darker in some areas. Also, always be sure to measure twice and cut once! — Lindsay
