- СALCULATE THE AMOUNT OF BOXES YOU NEED
First you need to calculate how many boxes of reclaimed barn wood you need. Measure the length and the width of the wall, multiply and get the area. Divide it by the square footage in one package and voila! Now you know the amount of boxes for your project. And don’t forget to take into account an additional 5% of the wood for trimming.
- PREPARE THE AREA
Сlear the space from furniture, remove protruding elements, clean the wall, and, if necessary, remove the frames of outlets and switches.
- DRAW A REFERENCE LINE
Using a level, draw a straight horizontal reference line on the wall; this is the starting point for the layout.
- APPLY THE CONSTRUCTION ADHESIVE
Spread glue or any other adhesive (we recommend to use liquid nails) on the back of the first panel and press it to the wall straight along the reference line.
- SECURE WITH NAILS
After, secure the panel with nails – with either a hammer or a nail gun. It's possible to mount the panels without liquid adhesive, in which case you need to secure them with 6 nails.
- CUT THE PANELS
To complete the row, you need to measure the remaining distance and saw off an appropriately sized piece of a panel using any type of a saw - hacksaw, jigsaw or trimming saw. The rest of the panel can be used to start the next row.
- REPEAT UNTIL DONE
Repeat the steps 5-7 until your project is completely done and you can fully enjoy the cozy touch of real nature at your home.
