Add Wainscoting to Walls Using Pallet Wood

Get the look of wainscoting without the cost.
To start off, I nailed the top boards to the studs in the wall at the desired height. I also applied builders adhesive to the back of the boards.
Next, I added the second row. I measured and used a level to keep the distance the same along the wall.
I then added boards connecting the two boards.
Next, I added the lower vertical boards.
Using a caulking gun and paintable caulking, I filled all the holes, knots and cracks. I then added a bead of caulking where the boards met and along the sides of each board.
After everything was filled in and dry, it was time to paint.
I’m loving the new look. It’s not perfect, by any means, but I works.
The only items I had to purchase were the adhesive, caulking and paint.
