  • cheap wood paneling
  • Minwax Classic Grey
  • Minwax stain in Assorted colors
  • Miter Saw (or any saw that will cut thin boards)
  • cups for mixing
  • gloves
  • rags or paper towels
  • paneling nails in colors to match your boards

I started by walking around Lowes, looking for inspiration. I found it in this economical paneling. They were on sale for $10 for a set of six. I grabbed 3 packs and took them home.

I measured the space and cut them to fit, using different lengths for each board. After that I sanded them down. They didn’t need much sanding, they were pretty smooth, but at the ends where the I cut them needed a little bit.

To create a mixed wood wall look, I got to staining. I wanted it to fit in with the greige walls, brick and metal surrounding it. I love mixing materials, in case you can’t tell.

This was the perfect project to use leftover stain on. I started by mixing each color with Minwax classic grey. I used about a half and half mix. Then I started to apply the stains in a varying pattern across the boards. I did take pics of the differences in the mixed stains to show you what it looked like.

I wanted a more industrial look, but you could easily go more heavy on the grey and even white wash for a more farmhouse look. Easy to play around with and great for getting rid of all those little bits of stain left over from other projects. I did two coats on each board, writing the colors on the back so I wouldn’t forget.

Once they were dry, I wanted to bring them all together a little more. So, I mixed some classic grey with classic oak and added a little water to make a very thin glaze. I applied the glaze all over all the boards and this helped to make them look a little more uniform.

After this, I started to install them. They were so easy to put up. It took me about 40 min. Since they are paneling, they just have a little tongue and groove so they stack on top of each other.

I bought two different colored paneling nails and found the stud lines. I drilled a small starter hole in the paneling. They are cheap panels, so I figured they would split pretty easily. Then I used the color nail that fit in best with each panel and nailed them to the wall as I went up.

So easy! A mixed wood wall look that’s easy and cheap.

So, that’s it! If you had told me I’d actually be putting wood paneling UP instead of taking it down, I’d have told you you’re crazy. But, if this goes out of style or I get tired of it, it’ll come down quickly without more than small nail holes.
