This was my first woodworking project. I started with reclaimed wood cut into tongue and groove panels. Stained some panels and white washed a few. Lined the panels up on the floor to get the right look before installing. Marked studs on the wall top to bottom with a pencil. Started connecting the tongue and groove panels at the top and securing with my ryobi cordless brad nailer and 1.5in. nails. Checked first row with level and got perfectly straight. Laid every row down from the first and cutting the last one in the row to fit the wall with my ryobi cordless circular saw. Cutout outlet with the ryobi cordless jigsaw. Overall the look came out very good and I framed it in with stained edge guard on the corners to match.
