We redid the insulation and put up plastic , bought a truck load of dried live edge wood. Want to make sure it’s dry and bug free! There are things you can use to easily get rid of any bugs that may follow you home online. Did a light sanding, just to take the fuzzy stuff off, so nothing gets snagged or anyone gets splinters.
Live Edge Wall
Rustic old wood with live edging put together like puzzle pieces for a wall!!!
I wanted to see them all so I spread them out all over the place and stood them up.
Putting “like” pieces , longer and shorter, curved and straight together helped me to see my design I wanted. We chose the longest straightest piece to start with on the bottom. Then it is building a puzzle!
Cut out any hole for the vent and outlets you need but it’s just random lengths from there on, unless u want a seam somewhere then you do the same lengths.
Usual pieces can prove difficult but you need to try different boards different ways till you find a match you like!
It was not easy!! But fun!
It’s not going to be perfect fits like puzzles but that was what I liked!
I had some really nice pieces that had curves in them so I used them to put an arch type design over the window. Getting to the top is the hard part but just keep trying pieces.
In the end I had a wall of raw live edge wood. Varnish or Oil , maybe stain to get the finish look you want! My husband cut and shaved the wood then just used long small head screws to attach it.
