At my wife's request I got to work on this recessed TV feature wall in our living room and we're so happy with how it turned out. It may come as a surprise, but this isn't out of reach for the average D.I.Yer so don't be scared to give this one a go.
To create the niches, I just fixed a 90mm timber batten to the very edge of our standard flat brick wall to extend it. I then filled the gap and join as both materials are pencil round, sanded back and repainted. Seamless. The bottom of the conduits and the powerpoints are also recessed and hidden behind the TV unit.
Panels: Easycraft easyVJ panels. Made-to-order with 63mm spacing.
Paint: Dulux Lexicon Quarter
Timber shelves: French Oak to match the TV unit
Before and after
More panelling projects
ProjectPete also used Easycraft easyVJ 63mm panelling on his kitchen island and painted with British Paints Mossy Road.
Bunnings Workshop member kingj11 used three 1m wall panels painted in Dulux Paris Green Matte to create this stunning feature wall and finished it with a Tasmanian Oak trim.
