If you are feeling really handy you could even install the pallet pieces on your ceiling instead of a wall to give your room a totally unique appearance!
You’ll probably be surprised to learn that this accent wall doesn’t have to just be for a child’s bedroom or playroom, although those are popular places for them.

A few gallons of latex chalkboard paint is all you need to achieve this look.
