My estranged? Separated? I don’t know what, husband, J. and I actually worked on this together. I watched a 1,000 YouTube videos and read another 1,000 posts on how to do this. In the end, I took a little from here and a little from there.
Bought the faux brick paneling from Home Depot. Cut the seams in a jigsaw, used liquid nails and a bras nailer. Joint compound mixed with a bit of water was used for the schmear. It’s a perfectly, imperfect technique. I practiced a little, but in the end, I jumped in and let the wall take on a life of its own. I will warn the joint compound dries much whiter than you think it will. Use sparingly if you want to see more brick.
Once the wall was finished, I painted the other walls Perfect Greige. Shelves and floors still to come.
I’ll post the final, final pictures once the shelves are built and hung and new flooring complete.
