Step 1: Get the Wood!
I found that 1/8" / 2.5mm thick plywood from a big box store is the cheapest and lightest way to make this project work.
I cut the strips into 7 and 7/8 wide strips to get the most out of the 48" x 96" plywood
Step 2: Paint It First!
I decided to paint the wood strips first to help with keeping the new floor and freshly painted walls clean!
Step 3: Space It Out
I used the material that i was working with to act as a space to give the stripe / crate effect. You can use anything to keep the gaps at 1/8-1/4" spacing
Step 4: Grab Your Partner
For the hanging, i attempted to do it by myself, but it was way easier to hire my daughter to lend me a hand. I glued it up with liquid nail and used a narrow crown stapler to help hold it until the glue dried
Step 5: Step Back and Look
After its up, grab a soda and admire your work!!
