On Monday, Tessa featured Thom Filicia’s old lake house in upstate NY. Throughout the place he had amazing wood paneling that gave such great character to each room. Do you feel like you’re going crazy right now? Wood paneling cool?? Yup, it’s back and it’s big.
One of my Sunday night rituals is to look online at my favorite stores to see what’s on sale. This Sunday, I didn’t find much on sale, but I did find something that definitely intrigued me at West Elm…Stikwood Adhesive Paneling…
How cool is this? What a perfect way to achieve a new look with texture on a wall behind a sofa, on a console, headboard or a backsplash in the kitchen. It’s also a great way to add character to builder grade homes. With its rich grains, these panels can be cut to fit your individual space and hung up in a few simple steps. All you need to do is peel off the backing and stick! It’s that easy. (Gosh, I sound like I’m selling linoleum flooring!)
West Elm just announced a partnership with Stikwood and now carries 14 varieties, including white reclaimed, barrel oak, expresso ash, morning mist ash and carmalized bamboo. You can apply the wood in a random horizontal or vertical pattern, or arrange it in a chevron or zig-zag design.
A kitchen island that has been transformed using white washed adhesive paneling.
Definitely a great option for commercial spaces–gives you that perfect blend of rustic and modern
I’m dying over this bedroom project. Click on the photo to see before and after shots. Love the chevron pattern!
I have so many ideas of ways to use this in my own home such as giving a metal mirror a facelift. Or, now I’m thinking about using it on the backs of my bookshelves.
Have any of you used this in your own homes? If so, please share!
