This isn’t your typical striped accent wall. Instead of bold, solid stripes, these are toned down, washed out stripes to create a gorgeous blue accent wall. You can easily recreate this look with any colors of your choosing and have your own gorgeous bathroom accent wall in a day’s time. As you guys well know,…
Man, this wall has been nearly a year in the making. When I found out we were moving and started plotting out the Circus’ room, I knew this wall was a must. I really wanted a way to convey the Circus’ unique personality and I think this object and text feature wall was the perfect…
Honesty is the best policy. And in all honesty, I don’t think I could ever lie to you guys anyway even if I wanted to. I’m not a shiplap fan. That’s not a secret around here. It’s not so much that I dislike shiplap itself, I think I dislike more that it’s freakin’ everywhere. Everywhere,…
As you know, my in-laws moved into our Beloved Foreclosure after we moved into the 70’s Landing Pad. The Circus of course got a new room here, but she also got to keep her old room at our old house. So now, the child has two rooms of her own literally within walking distance. As…
Sometimes I try to make things more complicated than they really are.
Not on purpose of course.
I just don’t think sometimes. Its like my mind sometimes turns off its “common sense” mode.
That’s also when I end up saying things I shouldn’t to people.
That common sense mode of my brain shut down when I started to do this accent wall.
You see I love caned pieces. Caned chairs, caned tables, caned light fixtures. I’m crazy over the pattern.
And I have a pillow with a caned pattern on it.
And I was determined to get that pattern on my wall. I knew I could. It was just straight lines strategically placed.
But I was overthinking it.
And it took Grunt Labor coming up to me, turning the pillow diagonally and saying, “Its just squares, Jenna,” for me to figure it out.
He was right.
But I didn’t say that because I’m not too keen on how saying he’s right tastes.
Like vinegar, I tell ya.
And once this revelation was made, I figured out how to make my own cane inspired wall.

I have visions.
Not like psychic visions – but that would be really cool.
Room visions, project visions, idea visions.
And in my head – they are fan-freakin-tastic.
In real life, they don’t always turn out so fan-freakin-tastic though.
In my head, this black and white gallery wall was fan-freakin-tastic.
In real life, its better than fan-freakin-tastic.
In fact, I can’t even come up with a word for how awesome it is and how much I love it.
This wall totally took my living room to a whole new level.
Have you been introduced to my new favorite wall?
Its shiny, its gold, its fun, and it was so easy to make.
My favorite thing about it? There’s no way you can screw it up.
Meet my Confetti Accent Wall.
I’m not sure that funnest is actually a word. I googled it after saying it over and over in my head a hundred times and still couldn’t get a clear answer as to whether or not it is a word.
I finally just went with my redneck instincts and left it in the title.
Keep in mind, I used to teach middle school Language Arts.
Those poor children.
So I know I didn’t tell you I was doing an entryway makeover.
Here’s the thing.
I hadn’t really planned on doing an entryway makeover.
And then it all just kind of happened.
Story of my life.
Accent walls can be a total game changer for a room. Not only will they add character and beauty, but they can define a space and bring it to a whole other level – not that this happened in my dining room or anything lately. 😉 Here are a few of my favorite accent wall…
First off, the title of this post totally has me singing the Kriss Kross Jump song – you’ll think me later for sharing that link.
Other than Criss-Cross, I couldn’t think of a better description for this wall though – besides of course amazingly-awesome-and-total-game-changer-for-my-dining-room.
But that would have been a really long title.
Now, in true “Jenna” fashion, I discovered how and how not to do this type of accent wall.
I started out doing it one way and then ended up doing it another way.
Either way, this criss-cross accent wall was truly a huge game changer for my dining room and does make me wanna jump-jump.
Depending on what colors you want to use and how big your wall is, you can totally get by with $30 for creating this wall.
Yes, $30 for one huge impact.
Ok, ya know how sometimes when you are reading a magazine or browsing on Pinterest, and you see those perfectly gorgeous bedrooms? There is high end wall art, beautiful mirrors, comfy bedding, and perfect antique furniture.
And you know that the bedding alone probably cost $1000?
If you have $1000 to spend on bedding or on a mirror or wall art, by all means, go for it.
Hell, I can’t remember when the last time was that I had $1000 to spend on a whole room.
Oh, wait, yea, I haven’t ever had that.
So, for the rest of us that want beautiful bedrooms without breaking the bank, here are 14 real life bedroom ideas that anyone can do.
I hope you just started singing Guns ‘N Roses Welcome to the Jungle after reading that title.
As I told you when I revealed the guest bedroom and office makeover on Monday, this space is a 100% selfish act.
When I started plotting this makeover, yes, I wanted guests to enjoy the room, but it was going to contain my workspace as well. And I would be the one spending the most time in here. So, come Hades or high water, this space would be whatever my little heart desired.
And it is.
When I showed you the guest bedding a few weeks back, I hinted that the back wall would be getting a serious treatment, so the bedding didn’t need to be too patterned.
That back wall did get a serious treatment – a serious leopard skin accent wall treatment.
Hi, my name is Jenna and I’m an over-analyzer.
The last time I over-analyzed something was just yesterday this morning.
I am easy going on many things. Most of the time, I’m just a “It is what it is” kind of girl.
But then, I start thinking about fabric and paint swatches and should I place this brass golf ball here or maybe here or maybe it needs to be on top of a vintage book…
Sheesh…. it never ends.
