Mr. right built the wall using rough cedar fence pickets- you can also use the redwood, but the cedar was less expensive - about $2.10 per board.The boards are just over 6 feet tall, so we ran them horizontally. After the wall was built we used a skill saw to cut off the picket shaped ends, which made the wall 6 feet wide.
We then stained the boards in min wax dark walnut. Wipe off excess and allow to dry for an hour or so.
We then painted over the stain with white paint. Let dry and then sand, sand, sand!
Such a simple treatment that makes a big statement. We'll be reusing our backdrop for our local elementary school's bake sale this weekend- another rustic themed event. It would also look amazing as a headboard, an architectural detail in a room or even to be used outside as a backdrop on a front porch. Let me know if you make one of your own. Love, Kelly
