A few of you have asked what we plan to do with our spare bedrooms, and since I shared a master bedroom sneak peek last week, I thought it time to do the same with our guest bedroom, too.

Truth be told, the bedrooms needed little work, other than ripping out a few walls and transforming a closet into a guest bath. Yet in one particular bedroom, a botched wallpaper removal job meant we had to work on some serious wall treatments. Rather than installing drywall over our mistakes, we decided to cover the patches with wood paneling — perfect for our Scandinavian aesthetic.

Want to see the look and a quickie how-to? This couldn’t have been easier:

There you have it! Of course, we will be painting everything white, as we so often do, and I’m envisioning transforming this space into a sweet nursery when the time comes (that’s not an invitation, storks!).

See you next week with a sneak peek on our dining room table plans, just in time for a hearty Thanksgiving meal!

    I'd love to see Ken and Erin for a full 30 minutes (or an hour?!?!) every week on TV! Luckily, I can also just drive 3 hours to see them in person. But seriously – you guys are a dream team on camera!

    (And Erin- I love your day two perfectly themed costume change – great gloves!)

    HA — you are so sweet! Thanks, Jess! Those are my gardening gloves, but eh — they're too cute not to use year-round! :)

    You two are amazing. This wall paneling really captures that sandinavian design. Love, love, love seeing what you will come up with next.

    It's *ridiculous* how good you two are at this!!! Talk about pros!

    I LOVE the paneling! Looks great! Are you *sure* you wanna paint it white? Even though I completely understand that motivation! :) I love me some wood and white!

  7. [...] -Speaking of said future nursery, Ken and I wall-paneled a spare bedroom in our renovation home and posted a fun little video on HGTV.com. Enjoy. -My 30/30/30 challenge is still in full swing, and it’s getting harder by the day. [...]

    Associated Press Sunday paper 11/21 shows a Thanksgiving table sponsored by Design Happens, HGTV.com and I need to contact them. I broke a glass 9" pillar glass candle shade shown in this picture and can't find where to get another one. Can someone get me out of the "dog house" by Thanksgiving? Dick
