Many year ago (like 20+ years), we did some remodeling where we had a wall constructed to divide the Dining room and Living room, which are at different elevations and were previously by a *hideous* banister.
The wall was cool back I the ’90 but was long overdue for an update.
Here’s a before shot.
Basically, I removed the upper part of the wall. Yes, the wall is load bearing, but the house was constructed with a beam to carry the load, so there’s no harm. We covered both sides of the wall with wood of different lengths and thicknesses. They come pre-finished with double-sided tape on the back, so you ‘simply’ stick them to the wall.
We purchased a reclaimed floor board from an old Thrashing barn from JC Woodworking, cleaned it up, sanded it a bit while preserving the character of the board, the sealed it with 6 coats of polyurethane. It came out pretty bitchin’.
