Yes Sir. Thank You. Built it myself. The paneling is made from individual knotty pine tongue and groove boards. Here is how it looks pre Christmas stuff.

Thats the look I want. Our basement is "half" finished, but the walls in the half finished area look like the original plaster, and I hate the thought of ripping out all....that....plaster.

Could you just put the pine boards over the plaster walls instead of ripping them out?

Not really. They need studs for nailing.

Drats. This could get ugly. This could take weeks.....and several bottles of single malt.

I still have to figure out the ceiling anyways.

So, not really clear why you would have to take down the sheetrock/plaster. Isn't that what measuring tapes, stud finders, and liquid nails are for? Huh

Well, my thought wasn't even Liquid nails................BUT since you suggested.....!!!!

Basically thats what I want to do to the basement. Total knotty all the way around the room, and some trac lights in a few planned areas for light on my wife's knitting. Hey - she knits like CRAZY.

So I guess Grl just gave me a great idea!!! Trying to avoid a MESS....and ripping out plaster.....is a mess.

OR, you could put up 1"x2" furring strips in 3 places horizontally across your wall- top, middle, bottom. Nail those in to every stud you come across, then when you put up your paneling you will have a definitely secure place to nail your paneling to. If you choose this method, remember you will have to adjust your outlets and switches since your wall depth will change, so be prepared for that.
If you go with the liquid nails, remember to nail each piece of paneling that you can into a stud, then you can liquid nail the other pieces until you hit a stud again. You will have to adjust your switch and outlet depth with this method too.
(and that's why it says hardware goddess.....Big Grin)
Whatever you do, good luck!
