Wainscotting can really dress up a room and give it a more sophisticated appearance. Unfortunately, various materials for wainscotting can be rather expensive, but here is a simple #DIY project that will transform any room with elegance for just a few dollars!
wooden picture frames (equal sizes)
Mark the top of the wainscotting by installing chair rail along the wall about 3 feet up from the floor. How high or low you place the chair rail is entirely your choice. Carefully glue the wooden frames (you can find inexpensive frames at Michaels or any other craft store) to the wall, spacing them evenly apart. Let the glue dry as directed on the bottle.
Carefully go around the edges of each frame with the caulking, smoothing with your finger (dip your fingertip in water first to keep the caulking smooth!). Let it dry.
Paint the lower half of the wall and frames to complete the wainscotting.
