Living room Setup in Budget ( Floor seating ) _ Interior Maata

I attached the base boards with two inch brad nails right into the studs .

I was doing the old knuckle knocking trick to find the studs , which is less than optimal .

There's a better way .

My favorite way to find studs in a wall is using a rare earth magnet .

Any magnet will work , but the rare earth magnets work really well .

All you have to do is run it across the wall and where it sticks to the wall , it is found a metallic fastener like a screw or a nail and there is a stud there and to keep the walls from getting marked up too much , I just put a little piece of scotch painters tape on the end and it is a great way to protect your wall .

I'm gonna be painting this , but it will work great that way if you're hanging pictures on a finished wall , and I used this trick to mark out the studs about six inches below the crown molding to make the next step a little bit easier .

Now , the mean nails are gonna hold the board in place .

But adding adhesive ca gives you that belt and suspenders confidence that it's not gonna drop down on your head and we hoisted up the upper board and then I nailed it into place at all those marks that I had just made on the studs .

But gaps where the vertical boards meet , the base boards should be reduced the best you can .

I use some shims to flush the one by fours up with the base before nailing them in and then I could come back and score them with a box cutter and snap them off and leave the shims in place behind the boards .

I went over the other side of the room and I installed the left edge to define my interior space before moving on .

I recommend marking the layout of your boards on the wall as a last confirmation before installing everything just to make sure that your measurements are good here .

And wouldn't , you know , I totally jacked up one of my measurements .

So I remarked the two boards and made sure everything was evenly spaced and avoided a big mistake in the end .

And then I can mark and label all the vertical boards and cut them down to size all at once .

If you don't get them perfect .

Don't worry , you can fill in any small gaps later .

And now when installing the interior boards , I used a 6 ft level to plumb up the one by four and then stuck it to the wall and nailed it in place at several spots .

You more than likely won't be hitting studs here .

So a good amount of adhesive cack will hold the wood in place .

One of the things I started doing was leveling the board and then marking on both sides of it at the top , middle and bottom .

And that way I had nice reference lines so I could center the one by four on it and I didn't have to check for level once I had the adhesive on and wanted to tack it in place .

We're ready to install the horizontal boards here for the detail .

And I cut two spacers .

Uh These are 16.5 inches for our wall and I also cut the horizontal spacers to fit and they're nice tight fit .

So now I can just use the spacer to butt that straight in .

Just imagine that that's up there .

So we're gonna put these in .

I'm gonna use the 16.5 spaces for the top as well as the bottom and it'll make installation super easy .

And spacers really do take the guesswork out of it and all you have to do is worry about shimming out the boards to be flushed with the verticals .

I use cedar shims for most of the larger gaps , but for smaller gaps , I used a couple pieces of playing cards to shim it out .

And just a tip here , cutting those top boards a little tight will help you with the juggling act of trying to use the spacers on the top and nail the one by four up there all by yourself .

And , but now I could really start seeing how the room would look and I am loving this layout for sure .

The boards are up and they're looking great .

Now , I have to fill all the holes and the seams .

I'm gonna be using some more of the three m high strength small hole repair .

And I'm gonna use it actually in the big tub because they have so many holes .

And I'm gonna also use it to fill the cracks and you want to fill the cracks and the holes first .

That way you can sand everything and get the dust all gone before you start doing your ca I filled in all the gaps and nail holes and went a little .

He so that I knew I could sand them back to flush .

And after it all dried , I could use those sanding sponges on the nail holes to smooth everything out .

But on the joints between the boards , use an electric sander .

It's gonna save you a ton of time here and just keep sanding until you see bare wood on both sides of the joint and then , you know , it's flush .

I finished off the wall prep by clocking all the seams of the trim .

Just try to use as little caulk as possible because you don't want it squeezing out and getting everywhere when you smooth it down with your advanced smoothing tool , your pointer finger .

All right , we're ready to prep for paint and we're gonna be using the Scotch , delicate surface painters tape .

This is specifically made just for this application , accent walls and painting stripes and things on walls .

It is perfect for that .

It has the edge lock technology which seals out the paint to give you a nice crisp and clean line also because it is for delicate services .

You can use it on painted walls after they've been cured for at least 24 hours .

So we're at 36 hours on this wall .

So we're gonna be good .

I'm going to bed it down and then we'll start cutting in and we'll get that nice crisp line when we peel it off .

Now , before starting to put down your tape , make sure that the surface is clean and dry and then start at the top and work your way down .

Now , I like to hold the tape roll tight against the wall to help keep the line straight to help seal the edge .

I came back with a putty knife embedded down the tape , putting some nice pressure on it and the tape should set for 30 to 60 minutes before painting to let that edge lock technology seal tight .

So I used that time to prime all the bare wood on the walls and to tape the top and bottom and do some cutting in .

I used the Scotch blue original on the carpet and I tucked the tape under the baseboard to fully protect it and definitely use the wide tape here for this application .

I use the Scotch blue sharp lines tape on the top to cover up the crown molding though , I realized that the entire line is gonna be hidden from sight because that top board actually sticks out further than the crown molding where they meet .

And before painting the outside lines , we decided to cut in the interior panels and that way Susan could be rolling while I was painting the trim boards .

I had this really cool time lapse of it all , but apparently my camera had other ideas because it cut off one minute into it .

So , and we're done at this point , it had been over an hour .

So I was good to paint the edges over the delicate surface tape .
