Instant colored wainscoating in 10 mins. No paint needed.
Materials: Sanela Panel, staple gun.
Description: I wanted to cover up the boring white wall under chair rail molding in a rented apt. Could have painted it but didn’t have the time to paint.
Got two IKEA Sanela Panels in grey. I hadn’t measured or anything. Thought it would be a good experiment.
They fit perfectly without any cutting.They had just the right stiffness and good texture like a grass cloth. I just got my staple gun and put them in position. 10 minutes later the room looked warmer, cozier and I was done!
