Step 1:

Lay down the drop cloth to protect floors; use painter's tape to cover trim, molding, ceiling and the edges of any adjacent walls.



Step 2:

Using the angled brush, apply paint just inside taped areas, then paint remaining area with the woven roller; remove painter's tape while paint is still damp; allow paint to dry 24 hours.



Step 3: 

Prep vertical wooden boards by lightly sanding any rough surfaces; wipe with clean, damp cloth to remove dust or debris.



Step 4:

Using the angled brush, paint all sides of each board; allow paint to dry completely.



Step 5: 

Using the tape measure, determine the center point of the wall by measuring wall to wall and lightly marking with a pencil.



Step 6:

Install vertical boards using a precut jig and mark the end points; level and secure boards to the wall with finishing nails and hammer; install remaining boards to the wall.
Tips: Use a stud finder to locate studs. If you don't have stud finder, know that most light switches and outlets are attached to a stud, which are typically spaced 16 inches apart.
A 16-inch precut jig is recommended. You can adjust the length based on the length of your wall.



Step 7: 

Use wood filler to fill in all nail holes and gaps; sand and use the clean, damp cloth to smooth wood filled surfaces and allow to dry.



Step 8:

Use the flat brush and paint to touch up wood-filled areas.



Step 7: 

Using measuring tape, determine placement of the hooks across the vertical boards; screw hooks into vertical wood boards.

Tips: In order to screw in the hook easier and reduce the risk of splitting wood, drill pilot holes in the boards.
