8 DIY Plank Wall Tutorials

Our first project for Carson’s new room will be a plank wall and, with our very limited DIY experience, it is nothing short of daunting.  With no clue where to start, I’ve been scouring the internet in search of as much direction, help and advice as possible.  There are a ton of fabulous tutorials out there and a zillion ways it seems to get the look.  The most cost effective option is to use plywood cut into strips, though the Monica Geller in me isn’t really fond of the impossible to clean, deep gaps between the boards and this particular method also seems to leave the most room for error.  I did also find a tutorial that uses 1x4s nailed to the walls, which also creates those deep gaps, but would be most similar to using actual reclaimed wood.  I think the best option for us would be to go with tongue and groove planks – although this is the most expensive DIY option, it also appears to be the most user friendly and in the end, I’d rather spend a bit more money to ensure that we are happy with the way it all turns out.  With SO many tutorials out there, I thought I’d share some of my favorites:
