    On this job the homeowner wanted a wainscoting look but on a budget . I used off the shelf moulding to create these panels to apply directly to the drywall . I try to equally design each panel to look uniform along that wall . Since most wall are not the same you have to adjust the width of the panels . These where all the same height at 20” inches .

    I used titebond quick and thick glue since it don’t drip as much and dries fast . I used Collins clamps on all the miters . There isn’t a nail on any of the miters to keep them attached . Just the four nails I used to attach it to the wall . I also used loctite instant grip but had some tubs blow out on the back end of my caulk gun . Not sure if it’s common with those tubs or what . I made sure there was a decent size hole for the adhesive to come out .

    I caulked the edges where it should caps from not sitting flush to the wall . Then apply two coating of whit semi-gloss paint by Vaslper . They were super happy with the finally result .

    Always willing to learn .

    That job turned out really good. Nice idea for a homeowner on budget. In the end. It is all about the look. Not how it was achieved Most people wouldn’t know you never used wainscoting anyways.

    Thanks I’ve done a bunch of these types were it’s not a full wainscoting install on the walls . Once I bought the Collins clamps it was a game changer making the frames .
