Execution time for our industrial basement! A few weeks ago I told Aaron “What if we did a metal accent wall in the area of our future wet bar?” And he said, “Totes, let’s do it!” I googled it, and this was the first thing I saw. Once I knew it was a Lowe’s Creative Idea, I knew it was on my basic DIY level. AND- It cost less than $50. Word.
Prepping the wall:
Remove baseboards, and secure corrugated wood strips to the bottom and top of the wall using drywall screws.
Next, we changed out the blade on the Skill Saw to a blade specific for cutting metal. Then, we created magic.
Isn’t Aaron a hunk? Especially with those fiery power tools. Hubba hubba.
They screwed the sheets of metal to the corrugated wood using Tuftex DeckDrain Fasteners (Piercing Cap-Washered).
Then we admired our shining wall jewel. It’s like watching a hair commercial. You know? Shiny hair. I’m patiently waiting for Garnier Fructis to offer to sponsor this wall.
MMMM! It was so easy. It took Aaron, Parker, Kami and Me less than an hour. And me and Kami mostly watched and played with the pups.
Other corrugated metal uses:
- Corrugated Metal Ceiling
- Corrugated Metal Wainscoting
- Corrugated Metal Back splash
- Corrugated Metal Headboard
THINK OF ALL THE FUN THINGS!
What are some fun accent walls you have done?
What are some fun corrugated metal projects you’ve done?
Update! We went and added some more art. Gold frames for mixed metallics!
