Most of these ideas are fairly simple to make as a DIY project, or you could find a local woodworker to have them built for you.
Let’s take a look…

16. More Chevrons
Here’s another chevron accent wall design. This one uses thin pieces of wood, each cut on an angle, and placed to create a six-panel design.
This wood accent wall has been created using dowels, each of which has been cut in half so the back is flat, which allows them to be glued to either a backing panel or to the wall itself.
