Cover an Ugly Wall

Introduction: Cover an Ugly Wall

I'm bad at spackling, covered the wall with yardsticks instead.

Step 1: Be Prepared

Yardsticks do come in different sizes, had a few that were 39" instead of 36" The thickness also varies quite a bit.

    Hey, that's a pretty simple idea. I like the way it turned out!

    How did you attach them?

    Loctite Clear Power Grab. However, a few had to be nailed with finishing nails, due to warped yardsticks. The only thing with the Loctite, it sets real quick, have level handy. Yes, used the level on each and every one.

    Cool. Yes, I can see why a level on every one would be necessary. Otherwise, over some distance they would tend to "creep" or fan out one way or another.
