So.... I finished my "DIY" planking! For those of you who missed part 1, it's actually just that 70's paneling turned sideways :)
Along with my reveal I am going to give a brief tutorial. Sooooo if you would like a more detailed explanation feel free to click on the Reach Us tab :)
I bought 2 sheets of that 70's
show paneling. I decided on the one with the different sized "planks". it was $14.58 for one 4x8 section.
He used a fancy work saw but he said that the exacto knife worked just as well if not better. Just score where you want to cut (push extra hard) and then break the piece off. OR use a fancy saw :)
If you have 2 corners that will meet up, slide this corner rail on for a nice clean finish (cuz the edges are not clean FYI) They can be cut to size and just slide right on! We used them for our corner and our outside ends and then painted right over them.
Oh... and FYI your panel will be 4 ft high + the height of your trim. I wanted mine higher so I hung it at the height I wanted and then added an extra "plank" on the bottom (leftover from the other piece.)
Ready for the reveal?! ......
Not too shabby if I do say so myself.
Recognize the clock? It's a knock off I made from the Pottery Barn Spring 2010 catalog. (hanging on the wall in one of the living rooms) I'll be posting the tutorial within the next few days. It was super easy :)
