[Project Notebook] Planked Walls

I seriously love the look of an accent wall and, as our style and pieces in our home have evolved, I'm itching to add something different to our dining room. 
 If you haven't already heard, we've (O.K. really just me, but my husband picked out the color) have been repainting most of our house in a lighter and brighter color.) We went with Benjamin Moore's Cloud Cover and love it. 
So, even though I just recently painted our dining room, in the coming weeks months it will be painted again. Of course that will cause a problem because I can't exactly paint with the book page accent wall still up. I totally saw this coming, so that is why I simply hung up the pages with double stick tape. Easy on. Easy off.
My dream would be to replace the book pages with some sort of planking.  Aren't the examples below gorgeous! And guess what...the second photo is just a painting technique. Genius!
