How to Install Faux Stone on a Inside Wall

We decided to open up the space under our stairs and turn it into a wine cellar (no refrigeration) and just recently added a faux stone wall.
First we made a mock up of how we wanted the wall to look outside by creating a template with chalk. We played around with the layout until we were both happy with the way it looked.
Clean the wall first. Next, we applied a premium grade adhesive to the back of the stone and applied the stone directly to the wall. (We used PL375)
Start from the bottom and work your way up to the ceiling. This will ensure that the seams on the next row will line up.
To go with the theme of our fireplace we installed random pices of wood that we stained for a more rustic feel.
We love the stone wall and how it ties the rest of the house together.You can find the tutorial on my blog for installing the wood.

    I am wanting to put it on a brick wall. Anyone know how easy it is to cut? Also I use my wood burning fireplace, I am taking their word that it is good for that and can take some heat.

    Can you apply this over ceramic tile?

    If that's the case it could be glued to a sheet of plywood then attached to the wall with specific fasteners. I still want to know what they're made of. Maybe it's not brick, but a resin type product… not heavy.

    Beautiful. Looks like a peek into a castle wine cellar! The "stone" is perfect with the arch, gate and sconce. Lovely.
