Photos wanted: White pine on walls

Greetings DIY'ers

I have a living room that is white paint with gold sparkles glued to it. (not done by me)
I was thinking about putting up some sorta tongue and grove wood panels up on the way.. say 3-5" wide.
I wanted to see if anyone else has done this and if you have some photos of how it looks and any tips on installing if you did it yourself.

Thanks
Joel

I'm not entirely sure what you are asking

T&G can be installed either horizontally or diagonally on most walls with no problem. 1x6 is the most common size. You must make sure to use nails long enough to penetrate the drywall and fasten securely to the studs.

IMO it's quicker/easier to stain [or not] and apply 1-2 coats of varnish/poly prior to installation. The final coat should be applied after installation.

Hi Mark
Im just asking to see ideas of what others have done. This will be a winter project I believe and so I am just gathering ideas as to what others might have done. Thats all..

My youngest son's house has 1x6 T&G pine on the living rm, dining rm, kitchen and half bath walls and ceiling. IMO it looks quite nice with the white crown, base, door and window trim.

It is however a look that doesn't appeal to all

That is true that it might not appeal to everyone. I plan on just doing one room I believe with this idea. Trust me it would beat white walls and gold sparkles any day. LOL

It would be cheaper and easier to just paint the walls. The glitter was applied while the paint was wet. It can be painted over just like regular paint and you won't see the glitter anymore...... but I do like the look of wood.
