For this dining room Wainscoting project, I combined the rustic beauty of weathered pallet wood with old corrugated tin roofing for a unique wall treatment. The various tones in the wood deck boards blended with the patina & rusted on the roofing material for a very attractive finish.

Add a one-of-a-kind look to your rooms with an Upcycled Wainscoting!

I started by taking a linear measurement of the wall and did some rough math to determine the materials necessary to accomplish the task. Thankfully, I had just about what I needed in the form of leftovers from the previously completed pallet wood wall. A friend gave me the corrugated material from a dilapidated old shed on his property.

I worked in roughly a clockwork direction, using mostly a nail-gun & 2″ finishing nails to attach the materials. Where the metal siding was against the existing drywall, it overlapped the adjacent vertical slat on each side to help hold it down and give it a finished look. I continued this way around the room. I finished the project off after I worked past the laundry room door, where a top rail and baseboard of pallet wood slats completed the entire project. Thankfully, I had very little waste since I took the time to measure and plan out the project.

And Grandma Irma was happy.

Then I continued the pallets and tin under the large window in the dining room. I finished the top and bottom with more deck boards.
