  1. This wall turned out so well! The choice of the stain color is perfection! Very nicely done! And those lamps are THE DEAL, to be sure!!! Superb job, gentlemen…superb!!! Thank you for sharing!

    • Thanks Vickie!!! We are just thrilled with it….Especially the lamps..I’m always nervous about a NON-returnable internet purchase….These were way better than I expected

    • Thanks Sally, It’s even more beautiful in person….In fact, I’m gazing lovingly at it as I type this…..

  2. Gorgeous-and thanks for the tip on wetting the wood before staining it (with oil based stain). I have never heard that before, but your finished project proves the point.

    Great job–thanks for sharing.

    • Glad that you like it Janie…..I don’t stain very often, so I’m always looking for ways to make it easier…and prettier.

  7. Visiting from Burlap and Denim and am so thankful she hooked up with you to share this. What a beautiful room. I agree that a glue gun is a must have in our arsenal of tools. Looking forward to exploring the rest of your site. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Thanks for the heads up on this stain color! I just tried it on some solid wood ikea furniture. AMAZING! Can’t wait to see what you guys are up to next!

    • Hi Tiare, this is just slightly embarrassing, but we got it from Rooms to Go, I think it was 300$. It’s their Pottery Barn style. We want to replace it with something made of wood……but haven’t found anything that we like better yet .

  10. Saw this on Pinterest, what an awesome accent wall. I’m particularly in love with the lamps, where did you get them? Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Melanie, our wall looks even better in person, we admire it every day. We got the lamps at Restoration Hardware just about a year ago. They were having a lighting sale and they were about 100$ each .

      Now go build a wall!

  11. AMAZING! LOVE IT! :) Just staring at some pallet wood we have already taken apart and is sitting in our room as i type! Now to get cracking and put it all up on the wall! It sure is motivating looking at this piece of art you have created! Thanks for sharing!! :)

  17. I love, love, love your bedroom! You guys have a fabulous home and great talent. Where did you find the red Navajo blanket and rug? I think they are fabby!

    • Hi Diane, aren’t you sweet? Thanks for making our Sunday night that much nicer. The blanket is from Pendleton, we got it in New Mexico a few years ago…and get asked about all the time. Unfortunately, they don’t make that style any more, but there are several red/black ones on the website. The rugs are all from El Paso Saddle Blanket, they have a site as well.. Happy decorating, James

  18. Love your room! You guys are very talented and creative. Where did you get the horns above your bed and your bedding? Thanks!

    • Hi Dani, The horns were a gift from a friend years ago, but I still see tons of them on eBay. The red blanket is a very old Pendleton, not made any more, but there are many, many more on their website.

  19. Omg I searched for old planks and ideas for so long! I found this one and fell in love with it all. And you left such detail directions on how to achieve this look! Thank you thank you. I will definitely do this:)

  20. I just found your blog site tonight while looking through some pinterest home repair ideas. I only looked tonight at this project and the fence. I will return later in the week and look at more of what you have done. The wood wall in the bedroom looked well done. I, too, had never heard the tip about wiping down the wood first before you stain. I will keep that one in mind. I use pallets/skids for many projects. I have found three sources for them where they are brand new and the companies I get them from do not reuse them. The lumber from them looks brand new save for the holes from the nails. The companies thanked me for asking for permission for them and when they get some special pallets/skids in they will call me to let me know they are setting them out. I look forward to following your future posts. God bless.

  21. Beautiful wall .. going to do it for my sons room next week. Did you buy smooth or rough sawn planks? Just standard pine 1×8?

    • Hi Cindy, Those juicy, juicy orange jersey sheets were from Target a few years ago. Aren’t they just the best ORANGE color? Like a friggin’ Crayola Crayon. I’ve been tryign to find replacements lately and have had no luck……Please let me know if you find some similar.

      • Hi Ann!!! It’s Martha Stewart Fawn…..H Depot used to carry Martha paints, if they don’t in Lubbock anymore, they should still be able to color match the color in another paint
