|I was working in really bright sunshine and was painting on aluminum foil, thus the super bright picture! Oops!|
I then arranged my pieces on the lattice until I found a pattern that I liked. Notice that some shims are painted and some are stained I liked the mismatched look of this but go with all one type of paint or stain if you’d prefer!
Once I found an arrangement I liked, I put glue on the lattice pieces and laid the shims on top. I let it dry then hung it using screws in the bathroom. Easy! While this sounds super time consuming, it only took me about an hour from start to finish. Since this was supposed to resemble reclaimed wood, I didn’t worry too much about it being perfect. Overall, I love how the colors tie into the accessories I have in the bathroom and I love the rustic look of it. Pottery Barn sells a similar wood shim looking project and it costs $400!!! This cost less than $10 dollars and definitely makes the impact I was hoping for. When you walk into the bathroom, you are looking directly at a wall and that’s where I placed this.
