Stikwood focal wall

Looking for an easy way to spruce up a boring wall?  Stikwood tiles is the perfect solution!   This easy DIY Stikwood Tile Focal Wall tutorial is the perfect way to transform a blank wall into a masterpiece.

A couple weeks ago I reached out to Stephanie Pohlman @stephniepohlmandesigns to discuss some spring updates for my home.  I definitely wanted to paint my front door, but also wanted Stephanie’s suggestions for a few more updates. Stephanie had made an Instagram post about these amazing wood focal walls she had done.  So, I asked her to bring some samples. As soon as I saw them in-person, I became obsessed, and knew this was the perfect product for my spring refresh!

Check out the before and after photos.

Stikwood is a peel-and-stick wood plank product that’s made from reclaimed lumber.  The company was started by Jerry and Laura McCall of Sacramento, California in 2012.  Jerry is a master woodworker, so the couple wanted to combine his skills with Laura’s creative vision to make an eye-catching décor product that also reuses natural resources.

Most U.S. family rooms have large flat screen TVs that dominate a wall.  While our family room has a mantle and fireplace directly under the TV, I still wanted another element that would direct visitor’s eyes away from the entertainment component.   

Stikwood was the perfect product!

While paint and wallpaper can add a perceived texture to walls, what I like best about Stikwood, is it adds physical texture which can’t be achieved with other products.  Monochromatic is very popular now in interior design, so that’s why I chose white to go with our mantle, and a herringbone design to make a big statement.  Go to Stikwood’s website to check out the wide variety of colors and textures available, all of which will add a lot of “wow” factor to your living space.  Stikwood has also been featured on HGTV’s show Property Brothers.  Stikwood products can only be purchased on the company’s website http://www.stikwood.com

While Stikwood is a D.I.Y. product, my obsession with herringbone required professional help to make it happen.  I chose to hire a local contractor to install it because I herringbone requires a lot of precise cutting, especially around windows and mantles.  If you live in the St. Louis metro area, I highly recommend One and Done Contracting. Their customer service and attention to detail were amazing!  Check out the time lapse video below to see the crew work their magic.

I was ecstatic with how everything turned out!  Plus, Stephanie helped me add some small details like new pillows, blanket ladder, ottomans and a fun chair that updated and pulled the room together.  It’s totally magazine-worthy room by my favorite designer Stephanie Pohlman.
