How to make a wall with your own wood

A wooden wall can be a good way to add a touch of rustic beauty to your home.

But a few steps can make your project look even better.


Add a wooden floor joist If you have a wooden door or door frame, you can use it to support the flooring.

Alternatively, you could simply glue down a sheet of the same material and use it as the floor joists.

This creates a solid, sturdy structure.

You can also use a drywall joist as a flooring joist.


Build a wooden ceiling Add a layer of the floor in a way that maximises the light flow around your home and your garden.

This will help to retain moisture, preventing dry rot and mould growth.


Add an old window A window with a wooden sill can be made from a piece of old wood or a single piece of fabric.

You might be tempted to build a wooden skylight but that can be difficult to maintain and a bit messy.

A sheet of old cloth or polyester material would work.


Add more wood This can be an option if you’re keen on adding a touch more character to your living space.

Add wooden planks, old tacks, or even a sheet or two of plywood to the back wall of your house to add more character.


Add natural light You can add natural light to the wall by painting, gluing, or framing it with natural light-emitting diodes.

This helps to give the light a natural, more organic feel.


Add wood stain or varnish to your wall A varnishing solution that contains wood dye can be applied to your walls, flooring, or ceilings to make it more attractive.

Alternatively you can paint a colour to create a natural finish.
