we went to Lowe's and purchased about 4 sheets of the 4x8 paint-ready utility plywood and had Lowe's cut them into 6 inch strips, length wise. We paid about $3.00 extra to have all the cuts made for us but it was WELL worth it! After we brought them home we quickly sanded down the edges where there were any splinters or rough spots from the cuts. - See more at: http://www.thehouseofsmiths.com/2012/11/diy-wood-planked-walls-tutorial.html#sthash.hem6KcZ6.dpufked Walls Tutorial
how to install faux wood paneling (aka white plank walls) We had fully intended on buying the orange-speckled laminate giant of the 70s, but when we got to Lowes, we found this whitewashed pine version instead. At $14.98 per 4 x 8 sheet, it was a steal when compared to adding real wood to our walls!
Beaded board creates cottage style faster than any other element. Wood paneling called Ply-Bead from Georgia Pacific looks like beaded board, but it's really a 4x8-foot sheet paneling with tongue-and-groove edges. At about $19 a sheet, it offers a lower-cost option than traditional beaded board at $8 for a piece 8 inches wide and 8 feet long.
