White Washed Wood Nursery


Our nursery is small so we wanted a feature wall with high impact that could also transition to a different gender or something that our little one would not outgrow in the future. We went with a white washed wood in a chevron pattern and white walls so that way we could easily switch out the pink curtains and accessories if needed. We love how it turned out!

    How did you measure/cut the wood wall? Trying to figure out how much supplies we’ll need.

  2. avatar Jennifer says:

    What color paint did you use on the other walls?

    Hi Denise! The dresser was from TJ maxx so I was unable to link it!

    I don’t remember exactly how many boxes it took. One box covers 10.5 square feet so we ordered that and few extra. We tried not to waste much wood. Just cut them down the middle at a 45 degree angle and then the same on the ends.

    How many packs of the wood did it take for the wall?

  6. avatar Denise says:

    Where is the dresser from ??

  7. avatar Katie says:

    This is lovely! Thank you so much for sharing. How many boxes of the whitewash wood do you end up buying? What is the dimension of your wall? Thanks in advance for your response.

    Hi Amanda!
    We used a nail gun and nailed it to the wall. We just used 2 inch nails (i believe) and we have plaster walls so we didn’t really need to worry about finding studs, although if you have drywall it might be something you have to consider. We never had a board split when nailing it with a nail gun.The boards are pretty thick and hardy so it seem to work out just fine!

    Thank you for your kind words, I hope yours comes together beautifully!

    Hi, we bought this exact wood for a feature wall in our home. My husband mentioned glueing the wood on, although i see that you nailed it…
    Did you have issues with the nails drastically showing? Or it splitting the wood when nailing it it?
    Curious what kind of nails / length of nails you used?
    Your nursery is gorgeous! I cannot wait until ours is done.
    Hope to hear from you!

    Can you please send the link for the materials for the wall.

  11. Kaci Hack says:

    We did not stain or seal it. So far we have had no issues but may choose to seal in a matte in the future.

    Here is the link to the pulls:

    Lovely room! Did you stain or seal the closet doors at all? Also wondering if you can link your closet door hardware please. Thanks!

  13. avatar Sarah says:

    I love everything about this room, such peaceful colors and great texture. I would love to know, where did you find the closet doors?

  14. avatar Brittany says:

    Hi there. I was wondering where your dresser came from? I’ve been looking at getting that crib but I didn’t want the dresser to be too different from the crib.

  15. Kaci Hack says:

    Hi Gina- This room was painted a light gray color prior to us turning it into the nursery so we just nailed the wood directly on the gray colored wall. We can’t see any of the old color of the wall in between the wood so I don’t think you would need to paint it dark for that effect. :)

    Hi Emily! Yep, each cut was at 45.

  16. avatar Emily says:

    The wall is gorgeous! Did you cut each plank at a 45 degree angle?

  17. avatar Gina Hardy says:

    Hi! I love your plank wall! I’ve been wanting to do this for so long! I just had a quick question… Did you paint the wall behind the wood a darker color to make the cracks stand out at all?

  18. Kaci Hack says:

    Hi Samantha! We were trying to just cut them all equally in half but we made some adjustments based on the wall width so we could have as equal of rows as possible. We started in the middle and worked our way out. We have an older home so of course walls are not straight so my husband cut each piece to fit when putting the last rows in on each corner!

    Hi Lindsay! That was actually a TJ Maxx find from a few years ago so I wasn’t able to link it! :(

  19. avatar Lindsay says:

    Beautiful job! Where did you get the matching dresser?

  20. avatar Samantha says:

    HI! Your nursery looks beautiful! Quick question – I noticed the wood comes in 4′ planks. How big is each piece of wood you installed? How much did you cut the wood plank down to?

  21. Kaci Hack says:

    Hi There! Thank you to everyone for the nice comments! I added links to most items!

    Jennifer: The crib is the DaVinci Fairway 3-in-1 Convertible Crib in Rustic Pine. The link is above but multiple online stores sell it. :)

    Candice: We ordered the wooden name off of Etsy. The link to the item from etsy is above but they also have another site where you can preview the sign . We used October font, wood color is Birch and its 42 inches. Once we received it, I did a light white wash to it with some flat white paint and water. :)

    Brandi: We got the White washed wood from Home Depot (link is above). We did the wall pattern and install ourselves. However, we did nothing to the wood, it already came with all the unique coloring right out of the package!

    What a beautiful space! Thank you for sharing here on Project Nursery. I hope you’ll consider adding some sources—as you can see, it’s already a popular nursery with our readers!

  23. avatar Brandi says:

    Beautiful! Can you share where the wood for the wall came from and who did this for you (hoping you’re atlanta based)?!

  24. avatar Candice says:

    Where did you order the wooden name decor

  25. avatar Marilou Peiny says:
