planked...

my friend and i had high ambitions of doing a planked free standing wall in her basement…it’s a wall that covers a pole and it just needed something good to happen…

that was last year…we basically succumbed to our lack of knowing where the hell to start, so it sat…that was until last week…emily and i (more emily than me) went over and banged it out…i did some staining and lent a lot of moral support while she hammered, sawed and did the grunt work…
 
 
we went vertical on the sides because we were afraid of it looking too busy if it ran horizontal…

the boards were all nailed by hand by emily…i love the look of the nail heads…they smashed down with hammering which added to the rustic look…
