DIY or Hire Out: Wood Wall Treatments

Seems like wood wall treatments have grown exponentially in popularity the last few years--and that's not just shiplap! It is very cool to see people adding architectural details to rooms that need some extra oomph with paneling, moulding, and other creative applications of wood wall treatments.

This week on the Your Home Story podcast, we're talking about several popular wood wall treatments and which ones you can do yourself! (We did something similar back in episode 15 about wallpaper--when you can DIY and when you should hire a pro.)

There are a TON of cool inspiration photos for this episode, check out a few in this post and see the link list below!
