Decorating a Two Story Wall

Pin It
Do you ever have a design dilemma that you just can't figure out?  I've had one for the last year!

What in the world should I do with this 22 foot wall in my living room?

This has seriously bugged me for over a year!  I have spent a lot of time researching a good way to decorate the space, without spending tons of money.  No easy task when you are dealing with a 15 ft x 22 foot wall.

Well, somehow I stumbled on the a company called Fretworks Designs.  Basically they design and make large MDF panels for walls or furniture.

Since my space was so large, they helped me design 4 panels to fit just perfect.  They have lots of non-custom options though.  

Enough blabbing.  Here are the panels, and my design dilemma is now solved!

They perfectly fill the space, and I no longer have a ginormous blank wall staring at me constantly!

Just to give you an idea of how large this wall is-each of those panels is 6 feet tall!

The pattern I chose was "Homewood". 
 I wanted something simple, and classic feeling.  I don't want to change my mind about liking them in another year!

It was quite a task to actually install these panels-let me tell ya!  

But it's done, and it's one more project checked off the to do list.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Those panels are so pretty. I don't usually think about doing something like that for big spaces, but these look lovely.

  2. Hi Sarah, Nice way to break up the space and add accents to the room. Thanks for sharing at the party! I'm ready to spruce up a few rooms in our house. I only have one room with a high ceiling I don't think it's quite as tall as yours. Have a great week. Theresa @DearCreatives

  3. Oh wow, I Love it! it totally fills your huge family room! I also love the retro vibe too. Thanks again for linking up to Design {it} Friday, your projects are Awesome, love your blog!!

  4. What a fabulous idea! Although my walls are only at 15', I face the same issue with so much wall space to fill. I am about to take on the huge task of painting, again, but this time I am going to bring the ceiling paint colour down the wall to help break it up. Now, if I could only decide on a colour :)

  5. How much did they cost?

  6. I tried to contact this company because I have the same problem, but I can't get them to call back?
