|[DIY lattice wall].|
So after the Great Board & Batten Wall, and the farmhouse Plank Wall, my nail gun was getting antsy and looking for a new project...
Ta-da! A lattice wall at the staircase landing was born.
This is the wall at the bottom of the staircase in view of the dining room, so it was a good place to do something fun.
Cost: at $0.70 a foot, this one came out to $42 for the lattice. I already had the paint from the farmhouse Plank Wall project.
Since I measured and cut each piece on site, I just brought the miter box up from the garage instead of using the circular saw.
I used my awesome Ryobi nail gun to tack the lattice pieces to the wall. Have I mentioned that buying that nail gun was my most favorite-ist purchase I've made in years? I have? Ok.
I measured and put the verticals up first, then filled in the horizontals. These lattice pieces were so super-lightweight that I didn't worry that my design missed every stud in the wall :-)
Here it is nailed up and ready for paint:
Finally, it was time for a couple coats of paint. Last step: hanging my Oregon map art:
Yes that is my gorgeous Grandmother's high school picture underneath the light fixture:
Sorry for the grainy pictures, guys. One day I'll get myself a real, big-girl camera!
