Ok, so I’m a knotty girl.
Some designers may disagree with me, but I think real knotty pine wood paneling is gorgeous. Sometimes you just gotta go with it. When we first moved into our 1930’s cottage I didn’t know how I felt about the 1950’s add-on wood panelled den. Should we paint it white? I’ve stewed on that thought FOR YEARS. I mean, white painted panelling is the go-to these days it seems. But I've never been a trend follower. And I’m so glad after 18 years of living here that I didn’t paint it. This real knotty Pine wood is not only extinct, but it adds a warmth and candle-like glow like no paint ever could. Plus, I get to live in a “half cabin”. Hell yeah!
So I say “save the wood!” (and I'm not talking the cheap fake wood panelling... eww gross).
Ok that’s my design two cents for the day! Oh and do you like my new thrifted dining set? 💯
