These pictures are presented for the sole purpose of giving the viewers some ideas how to break up the straight lines we see in most wanes coat walls. Admittedly a complete room of this type of construction is overwhelming but half wall with no furniture in front but with small articles such as flower or plant pots or a complete wall with furniture in front can be very attractive. The heart is a lid for Grand Child’s toy box.

All of these would look good as toy boxes… or headboards. I like the bookmatched grain. That 4th picture has a lot of interesting woods.

Taken in small doses, the tiled wall is beautiful! Thanks.

Is “wanes coating” the same as “wainscotting”? I’m not meaning to pick on people’s language, just curious if I’m missing something here.

Anyway, if it happens to be relevant, wainscotting, as in the panelling found on a wall, is so named because it used to always be trapped panel contruction, which was the same style as the side panels on a horse cart, which are also called wainscotting. Wain is slightly old fasioned english for wagon or cart (eg, a “hay wain”), and cotting or coting is the coating or covering on that.

Have your say...
