$35 DIY Wood Plank Wall

If you enjoyed this video, please help by SHARING and LIKING!
In this video I show how to make a custom wood plank wall out of regular 2 by 4 lumber and three different kinds of stain. ( I used Minwax Classic Grey, Dark Walnut, and Golden Oak) I ripped each 2 by 4 into four different strips and then stained them. I let them dry over night and then attached them to the wall using 1 inch brad nails.

10- 2 by 4 ($18)
3 different stains- ($17.50)
(bought at Menards with 11% off sale)

really like the contrast of the stains! And what a great price?!?! I don’t have a band saw, so i think i’ll use a table saw to “resaw” my
2x4s. I’ve seen some videos on this. will do a lot more research… but man, it looks great. thanks for sharing!

Respect for making your own planks. Think I might have to buy a box though

Max Planck says:

And To The Republic says:

Normal people don’t have saws like that lying around. How do I make a wood plank wall without saws?

jason danielson says:

U said u used a ripping blade to cut boards. Could u go into a little detail on what kind of tooth or brand width etc…. cool project it’s on my list thnaks

Joe Pallitto says:

Been wanting to do this for awhile. should there be any concern with buckling, being not able to float?

Jill RM says:

could you follow this same process on a concrete floor and seal it or would it need to be thicker planks?

rene sotomayor says:

when you take 3 pieces from the 2×4 what is the size you cut it 3/8 each?

MarkT says:

That is awesome. Thank you for sharing!

Jolien Brebels says:

This is really beautiful!

Rikai Pittman says:

What kind of nailer did you use? And what size nails or staples?

chris v says:

I’m moving into an apartment and want to do this for part of my wall. I was wondering if I could do this onto a sheet of plywood and then screw the finish plywood product to the wall. This is so that it’s easier to remove when moving out? Any pointers will be much appreciated. Thank you.
