Adding Beadboard Wallboard for a Cottagecore Look
I know I mentioned how paint traumatized this little house has been in the past, but she needed something bright and fresh, more fitting to her cottage potential like adding beadboard. The living room and kitchen are no exception.The rooms are actually a pretty good size, they are bigger than in our home, but the cozy room just seemed cramped and cave-like with the dark colors previously there. And, I thought the room needed some texture to add interest.
You might notice bare spots on the other wall in the kitchen, we decided to reconfigure the existing upper cabinets by moving the cabinets that are already there. The sink and stove will keep their same spots so we don’t have to change plumbing or gas, but all of the rest of them are getting a relocation (That will be a another post.). For now, I am really excited to show you how it looks now that the beadboard is up!
It is like a completely different place! It’s amazing hoe something so simple like adding some texture and fresh paint to a wall can make everything so different!
Plus, once we reduced the opening with the french doors,and trimmed it out, it looks amazing with adding beadboard! If you feel a little leery of adding beadbaord wallboard, (affiliate link) this Beadboard Wallpaper from Amazon is an easier commitment. I always love the transformation that happens with a fresh coat of paint, and architectural accents.
It is so exciting to see her come back to life!!! It’s so bright and fresh and clean looking. I love being here and letting the sun stream in.

Jen, it’s beautiful! Could you share exactly what you used to cover the wall… your title says “wallboard”… wondering how thick and how heavy it is… can you tell I’ve got a project in mind? Thanks for any light you can shed on this!
whoops! my e-mail is kmaggierose at aol dot com.
Love the bead board. What a difference!
You have done an amazing amount of work and it’s looking beautiful! (P.S. Thanks for the tips about the hammered spray paint… finally used it on our door hardware!)
Amazing! Love the bead board!! Looking forward to more updates!~~Angela
