Make: CHEAP Mod Wall Treatment

Make: CHEAP Mod Wall Treatment

Jason Hammond of local 'From the Ground Up' fame, replicated the above wall treatment in his family's first floor bathroom for--get this--6 bucks. The original is actually CLIF™ wall panels from Modular Arts


To achieve this feat, Jason used scrap pieces of MDF in both 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. Once the MDF was applied, he filled the cracks and nail holes with paintable caulk and then covered the entire wall with a bright white paint.

Very cool. I will try this. Except in Dallas I know I will have to spend more than $6 on the caulk. Still a really good answer to a rough wall. Thanks Ed
Quick follow-up.... I pulled out a bunch of scrap birch wood sheets that a Dallas manufacturer of cabinets gave me and they turned out great. It cost me about $40 but I did a Master Bath wall and 2 separate vanity areas.
Thanks...KEEP the ideas coming. Ed

Does information exist for the board dimensions that this gentlemen cut to achieve that pattern?

It's an awesome idea and looks great.  Even if you needed to purchase all  the materials, it certainly would be a lot of bang for you buck.
