Instructions
 
STEP ONE
Prep your walls.

If you are installing over tile, wipe your walls down to ensure they are free of debris and dust. If you plan to extend your shiplap beyond the lower tile wall, nail shim pieces to ensure the shiplap at the top of the wall is flush with the bottom of the wall.

STEP TWO
Cut.

Cut your shiplap to size, squeeze a few beads of construction adhesive along the edges and middle of the shiplap plank.

STEP THREE
Adhere.

Firmly adhere the shiplap to the tile, and if applicable, shoot a few nails into the shiplap on the top of the wall to make it extra secure. Work your way around the room. Finish outside corners with PVC Corner Guards.

STEP FOUR
Trim it out.

Add a 1×6” baseboard to the bottom of the shiplap using construction adhesive. Install chair rail to the top of the planks using brad nails.

STEP FIVE
Smooth finish!

Caulk any gaps for a smooth finish. Paint in your favorite latex paint color. 

Now, kick your feet up!
