DIY Wainscoting Nursery Ideas

Wainscoting is often used in a baby boy's nursery to add a layer of protection over painted sheetrock that is more easily scuffed or damaged than wooden beadboard panels.

Reclaimed boards applied to the walls add interest and texture, without compromising the nursery color scheme, as is the case with this interesting wall that was installed behind the baby's modern crib.

Occasionally, there are problems with the installation but our crafty visitors are really good coming up with quick fixes such as covering the rough edges of the molding in this baby girl nursery.

You can get a peek of the beautiful molding through the rails of the baby's crib. The installation of the DIY beadboard wainscoting in this pink and green baby girl nursery was enhanced by adding leftover fabric from the homemade crib set.

The white, wooden molding divides the nursery's wall into two sections and draws the eye along a horizontal line making this pink and grey princess nursery seem more spacious that it actually is.

The wooden chair rail visually lowers the tall ceiling making the space a cozy place to cuddle and rock a little one.

Doesn't this beautiful room make you want to learn how to install wainscoting?

The white crib, hutch and trim break up the baby princess' pink and gray nursery walls and reflect the elegance of the damask baby bedding set.

Baby Nursery Wainscoting Ideas Beyond Beadboard and Panels

Creative parents send in pictures of their handiwork using all sorts of materials that have been recycled or reclaimed.

The boards used to make this unique wooden pallet wall came from items that would otherwise have wound up taking up space in the local landfill. A pallet wall is a great place for a beginner to woodworking to start since flaws add rather than detract from the look of the project. The decision to paint, stain or whitewash the boards depends on the nursery décor.

For example the elegant, carved trim used in this baby girl's room would be out of place in a casual space.

The ornate frame of the mirror over the changing table was painted in the same color as the trim for a perfect match.
