Barn wood shelves are an attractive reclaimed building material that can give a room a rustic look. Furthermore, you can install barn plates on the finished basement walls to create an accent wall. Finished basement walls have been covered with a moisture-resistant, framed, insulated and dry walled barrier. And then, install the boards vertically on the wall, using a high strength construction adhesive. Select barn tables that are resisted and have a lot of character. Then, find boards of different widths to add a rustic look.
Place the recycled barn boards with the work surface, and brush them with a wire brush. Moreover, work with the grain of the wood to remove loose debris. Measure the distance from the floor to the ceiling along the wall you want to install the barn plates in, using a tape measure. Mark each board for the measurement of Stage 2. Cut the boards to the length of a radial arm saw. Clean each board with an antistatic cloth. Furthermore, spray a layer of spray lacquer even on each card.
Cut off the tip of your adhesive with the cutter built into the putty gun. Pierce the seal inside the tip of the puncture tool in the putty gun. Pivot the tube, tip for the first time in the putty gun. Apply a zig-zag line of putty along the back of each card. Press your first board into place on the left side of the wall. Continue applying the tables, working from left to right, until you reach the end of the wall.
