Today is the day you’ve all been waiting for… I’ve been teasing this wainscoting project for MONTHS, and it’s finally here! You can easily add wainscoting to your rental home on a budget AND with virtually NO tools!
What will you need for this project? You’ll need to get:
4. A mitre box & saw (optional incase you need to cut a piece)
The most important thing to note is you MUST buy polyurethane wall panels. These wall panels look like real wood, yet feel light as a feather. I suggest you buy the same ones I did as I wasn’t able to find any others that matched the quality. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes!
1. The first thing you’ll need to do is measure your walls, so you know exactly what sizes to order. I suggest keeping each panel at least 3 inches or more from each other vertically & horizontally. If you order the same ones I recommend above, they will arrive within two days if you have Amazon prime 🙂 IF they don’t already match the colors of you walls, they are EXTREMELY easy to paint. Talk to your landlord and ask the exact paint color they used on your walls. Luckily, mine matched almost perfectly so there was no need to paint 🙂
2. Once the wall panels arrive, you’ll want to add the corner velcro trips to the (back) 4 corners of each panel. This allows the panels to stick to the wall while still being removable!
You can even insert removable wallpaper within the panels if you want to add additional character to your walls. I chose not not since I liked how white and bright the wall looked 🙂
And there you have it! That’s how easy it is to apply wainscoting to your rental. The BEST part about this project is that it’s extremely easy to remove and take to your next home!
