    Did you have to engage an electrician to adjust any outlets or switches on your wall?

      We didn't need to. We bought a plug that brought the outlet flush and the light switch we left inset.

    What type of stain did you use?

      I used a combo of stains I had left over from other projects. They were all oil based stains by Min Wax. The blues you see are actually grey stains without mixing up the pigment.

    Curious on a couple of aspects. You spent $50, what exactly on? Are the planks sanded at all? Are these just plain good old pallets that you can acquire for free? Also, were they nailed or screwed in? We live in an apartment that I am almost at my threshold of living with off white walls! Thank you!

      The money was spent on stain and nails. The pallets were free( unsanded) and we used a pneumatic nailer to attach them to the wall. For an apartment have you thought of removable wallpaper?

    Thank You for letting me join the group,I uploaded my latest project that I am very proud of. $35 Aud just for the adhesive. Eazy as buttering hot toast.I also covered a gas pipe and marked it to avoid any future disasters.

  • I used soft pallett wood and acrylic paint,and a sanding tool,and a hand planer.the bonding glue was Sika Instant adhesive.

    Regards
