Makeover Project:

Foyer Wainscoting/Faux Wallpaper

My goal for this room was to take the clutter (hanging coats and shoes) from the wall that you’re looking at when you first walk into the house and move it to the same wall as the front door so you’re not looking directly at it when you walk in. Going up the stairs, there is existing wainscot and box paneling (that was done incorrectly), I am taking out the box panel that was done wrong & carrying the wainscoting throughout the rest of the foyer.

I took inspiration from 2024 Design Trend "Wainscot Just a Minute" to add a bold painted wainscot and some faux wallpaper my foyer.

See the full step-by-step tutorial below.
