DIY Faux Brick Wall

This post has been in the making for about....ummm...two months.  I changed my mind a number of times on what I wanted the end result to be. 

We started with these faux brick panels that we purchased from Lowe's.  My husband cut them and fastened them to the wall.  This is where I thought (to myself of course), I really don't like the look.  My husband said I couldn't take them down.   So marriage is all about compromise and  that's what we did.  He would take 3/4 of it off and add a "rustic" looking board & batten on the lower half.  But first I painted and sanded... and painted again...and sanded...again!  I had some killer blisters on my hands after.

Half-way there!

Finally finished!

This is what compromise looks like in our house. 


  1. I love it. That is very beautiful!

  2. I love the look painted. I was scared by that first picture, but it turned out great! I love your house.

  3.!!!! I LOVE it! I totally want to somehow copy you

  4. I love this, so clever and pretty.
