Here is the wall I chose to try a little "Pottery Barn" look alike technique on. It was really easy and very affordable. I just went to Home Depot and bought these wood slats that were 1/4 in. thick so they fit right up to our existing baseboards. They were already 4 ft. x 3 in. so I didn't need to cut anything. I just used liquid nails and glued them to the wall and then used a paintable caulk on all the seems after. This was the hardest part and really it wasn't that hard. Then when done, paint walls and trim same color.
This is a cute vintage dresser that was found at a garage sale by my friend Carrie for $40. It was a light yellow color and I just sanded it down and sprayed it black. It is my favorite piece in the room.
