Hello awesome Friends! I am SO excited to share a sneak peek of the feature wall in my new office today!
I had originally planned to add some kind of pattern with moldings to highlight the main wall behind my desk. Then I received an email asking if I would like to try AirStone for a project in our home. You know we had a lot of stone in our old house, and I had never really imagined it for this house, but I decided to go for it!
Here is the wall before:
I painted all the other walls and just cut in a bit on this one. I decided it would be best if we did this wall before installing our new floors.
AirStone can be found at most Lowes stores. I snapped this pic at my local Lowes the other day:
It comes in three colors. I chose Birch Bluff:
I think I may have had a “What have I gotten myself into??” moment when this arrived:
There was no need to worry though as soon as I saw it finished. It is gorgeous!
I used a total of 15 cases and three tubs of their adhesive for our 9′ X 13′ foot wall.
Here it is going in:
I chose to start it right over the existing molding…
I don’t think the color sample they showed on the display in the store does it justice. The colors are so much nicer in reality, and I just love the texture they add to this space:
Each box has an assortment of varying sizes and shades, so Jack helped me lay out a couple of boxes out at a time so I had a nice assortment to choose from as I went.
You can install it using only these items:
I did end up using my miter saw for speed, but it can totally be cut with a hand saw.
The adhesive is really easy to work with and has almost no odor:
You just spread it on each piece of stone like you’re icing a cupcake!
And stick it to the wall!
Easy, and AirStone weighs 75% less than real stone, but still has a nice weight to it.
Here’s something I love that I thought ya’ll would think was cool too:
Here is a little 30 second video that shows a little more about this product:

I hate to keep ya’ll in suspense, but I’ll be back on Thursday to share the finished wall. I absolutely love how it turned out, especially with my new floors and my newly painted desk!
What do you think about the idea of a stone accent wall? I know ya’ll weren’t expecting that were you? 🙂
To get your makeover fix, how about this old favorite from last year?
See how I gave it a brand new lease on life HERE!
