WE’VE all spent too long looking at a plain corner of our home and debating how we can spruce it up.

That includes the woman behind social media brand GJ Home Designs.


The homemaker regularly shared home renovation and DIY hacks, tutorials and tips videos on her Tik Tok account.

One of her latest projects was transforming her “boring” hallway into a fancier space.

And she did so through DIY panelling. 

Panelling refers to strips of wood being glued to the wall and can create a myriad of designs – including square patterns or wasitcoating.

Social media personality GJ opted to create a vertical panelling wall at the entrance of her “modern home”.

She measured, cut and glued the strips of wood on herself before painting over them in white.

However, she was keen on the space being “functional” so added coat hooks to some of the panels. 

GJ dubbed the corner a “slat wall”.

The project was shared on her Tik Tok profile with the videos totting up over one million views collectively. 

When it was finished, she penned: “DIY Modern Entryway is done!

“Functional slat wall where you can hang your coats and purses. 

“The boucle ottoman, battery powered lights and the mirrors all add to our modern home!”

The boucle ottoman also acts as a chair for people in the home to put their shoes on before leaving.

Fellow interior design enthusiasts were blown away by the design and flocked to GJ’s comments. 

One penned: “I did a similar design in our entryway also! 

“Love seeing projects by women with similar design brains!”

A second said: “I love it! So creative.”
