I've never second guessed the decision I made to cover the newly dry walled walls that came with my house when I bought it.

The previous owner had just added on the back part of the house in hopes, I am told, to fit a growing 5 person family into the confines of a tiny beach bungalow.
Her style,was not my own, and so once moved in, I went to work ( or, rather, paid someone to ) transforming the 'Tuscan' influenced space into a relaxed beach cottage room by simply adding a layer of 1 x 4s, and beams painted white.

Besides adding a layer of personality and depth, I now have little ledges through out the room where I can lean framed prints, next to found shells, next to little hand prints impressed in clay and other relics of the years that have passed since moving in. It's was the biggest transformation in my house and to this day my favorite room by far. (top photos: Deborah Whitlaw Llewellyn

Love the laundry room and will love the kitchen when I finally get it painted/washed/pickled/limed/stained.....
