Step 1: Clean and prepare your wall.
Step 2: Measure and Layout your wall.
(NOTE: some patterns are more elaborate, and will require more boards to complete.)
Step 3: Begin Installation.
(NOTE: if the project is only temporary do not use the adhesive.)
Set the first board in place along the layout from step 2, reinforce with nail or screw into wall stud. You can either face nail with finish nails /brad nailer or top nail at a 45⁰ degree angle to avoid face nailing.
Always check that each row is level and square. Measure out each row and cut each piece using electric or traditional miter saw. You can use a touch up paint to touch up each end- cut. Be sure to check your measurements twice to insure the cut is correct. Do this until wall is complete.
(NOTE: when you have to cut out for the light switch or electrical outlet be sure to leave enough room.)
A) leave a ½ inch space around the outlet to allow the cover to be installed flush to the drywall or
B) Talk to an electrician to shut off the power to those outlets. Remove the nail or screw holding the electrical box in place. Extend the position of the electrical box out the thickness of the accent board, re-fasten to wall stud. Proceed to cut out boards to leave 1/4 inch space around the outlet - enough for the cover to conceal the gap.
