Back wall of shelves Beadboard?
IÂm wondering if the back wall of shelves in the following 2 examples should be beadboard. IÂm further wondering about painting the beadboard. The shelves and trim in both cases will be white.
When do folks use beadboard and when do they not? I personally like the look, but IÂm wondering if there is some "rule-of-thumb"? Is painting beadboard difficult? How about Re-Painting it?
1) We expanded the width of laundry room so we can have 16" deep, floor to ceiling shelves running the length (10 feet). This room is between the garage and kitchen. The shelves will be used for pantry goods and cubbies for family stuff. IÂm thinking of painting the beadboard "Disney Sea Song". IÂm not sure why Â but that color jumped out at me. IÂm hoping it will be "fun" and put a smile on my face.
2) We are turning our foyer into a library Â lots of book shelves. The shelves will be white, but I was thinking of going with a sort of brick red for the beadboard. There will be one main Â large wall. Perhaps just the red on this one wall Â making it an accent wall???
