Creating a Feature Wall with CSI Wall Panels

Creating A Feature Wall With CSI Wall Panels by Creatively Living

Thank you to CSI Wall Panels for sponsoring this article. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

We have a pretty neat room up in our garage; my husband uses it for his music studio and study. (You can see the transformation of this room here.)

However, getting to his room was like finding a diamond in the rough. Seriously, the stairway getting there was rough.

Here’s what the stairway looked like (yes, that’s a pencil sharpener):

We always wanted to finish the stairway but needed motivation because patching, taping, texturing, painting…it all seemed a little overwhelming.

When CSI Wall Panels approached us I knew using their decorative 3D wall panels for a feature wall would be the motivation we needed to take on this project!

We used the Skip Trowel Texture technique to texture the walls…this texture pattern covers a lot of imperfections.

I know picture above looks a little patchy but that’s totally normal. It all gets painted over.

We painted everything white to help brighten up the space!

My 4 year old helper was pretty excited to help paint the walls. We also painted the wall panels white.

Since we have a really tall ceiling, we installed our panels from top to bottom (opposed to starting at the floor).

The installation process was pretty easy and straightforward. CSI Wall Panels provides a great step-by-step tutorial.

And here’s the final product! This is the view leaving my husband’s room. It’s such a neat feature wall to walk out to!

I can’t get over the transformation this stairway has been through!

What I like best about CSI Wall Panels is that they have 24 unique designs to choose from, it’s eco friendly, they’re biodegradable, and they’re so easy to install! They make a huge impact in such a short amount of time.
