an easy diy - wall panelling

Happy Valentine's Day! Instead of gooey chocolate or a dozen roses (hopefully someone else will buy you those) I'm giving you a  first class and easy DIY. This is one of the best I have seen in awhile.

Take Ikea cabinet kitchen door fronts, they suggest their Lidingo line which comes in white, and apply them directly to your wall to create ready-made wall panelling. Um, why didn't I think of that! Brilliant!

I'd suggest you could even use something like their Ramsjo line of cabinets that comes in black-brown or red-brown solid beech wood frame for  a moodier or more dramatic backdrop. Of course, any of these could also be painted to match your colour scheme. A simple modern room could instantly be updated to something more romantic and elegant.

With a bit of careful planning (check your dimensions before you start) you could have a panelled room by the end of the weekend.  A good project for you and your sweetheart!
