With a few easy steps, these barnwood wall planks can be cut and installed in an organized manner for a uniform but rustic look.
There are many different scenarios that decide whether you should start at the top of the wall or the bottom. If you are not using crown moulding or other trim against the ceiling then it’s best to start at the top and work your way done. This way if you have to make any cuts at the bottom, they can be covered with baseboard. If you’re ceiling is angled, it’s generally best to start at the bottom and work your way up. This will make it easier to measure for cuts once you get to the ceiling. With that said, it's recommended to remove any baseboard or ceiling trim before getting started so you can re-install these pieces over top of the newly installed barnwood wall planks. Use your best judgement where to start when considering your specific scenario.
Once you have your starting point, simply start installing your reclaimed barnwood paneling
one row at a time with a brad nailer or an adhesive like Liquid Nails. To reduce waste, it’s always good to start the next row with a cut piece from a previous row. As you repeat this process, row after row, make sure you are staggering the joints for an organized pattern.
