We love our new faux stone veneer wall from AirStone! This stuff is so easy to install and the final result is just stunning! I’m so thrilled to be sharing how our wall turned out with you today!
I’m so excited to get to show you this latest DIY project of ours today! This faux stone veneer accent wall that we installed in our living room was a little different from a lot of our other home improvement projects because it was just so darn easy! As you saw a few weeks ago in an earlier blog post, I only started this wall very recently and it’s already completely finished. I’ve even had time to update the decor in this area a bit and take some pretty pictures for you. 🙂
I think this faux stone veneer wall in our living room looks absolutely stunning and you would never guess that it’s not real stone or that it was so easy for me to install myself. Well, not completely by myself. My 12 year old daughter Kennedy helped me quite a bit too while we listened to Christmas music. 🙂
The product I used for this faux stone veneer wall is called AirStone. AirStone is an innovative product that gives you the look and feel of stone, but weighs 75% less! It’s installed really easily with a bucket of pre-mixed adhesive and a simple putty knife and all you need to cut it is a basic hack saw!
AirStone is available at your friendly neighbourhood Lowe’s (except for on the west coast) and it comes in three different color variations. The one we used for our accent wall is called Spring Creek.
Easily Install a Faux Stone Veneer Accent Wall With AirStone
As you can see, the stone pieces all fit together really nicely and stack up really quickly. Before we knew it, we were almost done the whole wall!
The hardest part was having to go get a chair once we got too high up on the wall to reach the next row! 🙂
I love that the pieces are all sized to fit together and you really can’t mess it up. It looks like you installed random pieces of stone and cut each one to size, but really you only end up needing to cut when you get to the end of a stretch of wall. The pieces are all designed to fit together perfectly even though they look random. So smart!
If you missed the first post, you can visit it here to read all about the wall we chose to install the AirStone on and see how it looked before. I think we can all agree that this is a major upgrade for us in here!
Even Chuckers approves! This is his “I approve” face, by the way. 🙂
I love how cozy the new faux stone veneer wall makes the room feel and I’m really feeling the itch to find somewhere else to use it in the house! Actually, finding a spot won’t be a problem because I have several ideas. Trying to get myself not to go overboard with this stuff will be the real problem. 🙂
AirStone is great for accent walls like this one, but it’s also perfect for backsplashes, fireplaces, and kitchen islands. It can be used just as easily outdoors as it can indoors as well!
I’ve been getting quite a few questions about AirStone since my last post, and one of the things people have been asking about is hanging artwork on an AirStone wall. Check out this quick video for a little AirStone Inspiration and to see how to hang stuff on your new wall if you were one of the people wondering about that!
We Love Our New Wall!
I really feel like this accent wall is the perfect back drop for our living room and it really anchors the whole space. This wall has always felt kind of unattractive and hard to photograph nicely no matter what and now I can’t stop looking at it!
Here’s how it looks when you look across the room from the dining room. This is the view I see when I first come out of our bedroom in the morning and I just love it.
What do you think of our new faux stone veneer wall? Do you have a place in your home where you’d like to install AirStone?
