Summertime is all about being outdoors. That means we should enjoy where we are hanging out, right? My patio was nothing special, and if I am being honest, I didn’t enjoy hanging out there. I knew that had to change. So, I got my DIY skills going until I transformed it into a place I love to be. The biggest piece of my patio transformation was an outdoor slat wall. I want you to have a space that you love too, so I am sharing what I learned so you can create your own DIY patio slat wall.
Refreshing your walls is a great idea if you are looking to make a statement.

There is just something about working with wood that gives me life. That’s why I want to share 3 ways to make unique accent walls with wood trim so that you can breathe some new life into your space.

Modern Slat Wall Design You Can DIY
Whenever I start a new project I always like to draw it up to help me visualize things first. Although I have a pretty good idea of how I want a space to feel, I might not have all the decisions made. That’s just part of the DIY process. In the room makeover I did for my son, I had been thinking about adding a slat wall but was still undecided. It wasn’t until after putting a wallpaper mural on all four walls (and finishing some other things up in the room) I decided a slat wall was the right move. Yes, this meant covering up some pretty wallpaper, but not a lot. If that makes you sad, just wait. The end result was worth it! Here’s a step-by-step on how I made this modern slat wall design, so you can replicate it in your space.
