Woman gives home $20 facelift as she paints over 'ugly' wood panels to create chevron pattern

A WOMAN gave her home a $20 facelift as she painted over what she called "ugly" wood panels on the wall.

She created a chevron pattern with wood stain and paint in her home overhaul.

Pictures show the before-and-after transformation shared by the DIY-er on Facebook.

Before, the wood panels were plain, and all one color.

They covered the walls in a downward diagonal pattern.

After pictures show the transformation, as the panels were painted and stained.

Some of the panels were stained a darker brown, while others were painted cream, blue, or black.

The DIY'er said she transformed the "ugly tongue and groove" into the chevron pattern.

Pictures show the area was brightened with a pop of color, as the pattern was painted behind the washer and dryer in her home.

She painted a similar color sequence on a smaller panel along the wall.


The DIY'er said the project cost her just $20.

She said she used craft paint, and paid for wood stain to use for the overhaul.

People were amazed at the transformation.

One person said: "What a great idea! Welll (sic) done!"

"That looks amazing!!" one person wrote.

Another person said they "Love love love it!"
