Add a rustic faux beam in your kitchen, living room, or master bedroom.
Adding a faux beam is a great way to give you that old farmhouse feel in your home. It’s also a very simple procedure that can be done on a weekend during the winter when you are stuck inside.
- Attach a 1 x 4 or 1 x 6 (depending how thick you want your beam to look) to the ceiling in your room. Be sure to screw this “cleat” to the joists above.
- Fabricate and stain your beam before installation. Do this using three (3) 1″ thick boards (width will depend on your preference) nailed and glued together forming a “U” shape. Roughen the wood to make it look rustic then stain with the color of your choice.
- With a friend, set the beam over the cleat you screwed into the ceiling and nail both sides into the cleat.
Faux Thick Baseboard
Molding and trim go a long way in making your home look more expensive. To get the look without the extra expense, simply add a piece of trim a few inches above your existing baseboard, then paint in between the space. Tip: purchase the trim pieces, paint and caulking right away. Then you will be ready to do this project while stuck in your house during a blizzard.
