Re: Wooden boards on walls?
Most are pine, however, you can get them in any wood you want. The most common is 6" wide, but they make them bigger and smaller. The most economical way to buy them is in bulk, figure out how many SF you need, order it all at once and you get a discount from most mills. You can stain them, paint, polyurethane, thats just your preference. The most common thing to do is let them age naturally with no finish applied. As the years go by they take on their own patina. Yes, they are rather expensive, but well worth it if you want that look. Any reputable finish mill can supply you with them, Lowes or HD are the most expensive place to buy them, and the quality is often poor. When you buy in bulk from a mill, you can return the crooked and substandard ones. If you buy from Lowes in packs, you can only return full unopened packs. Hope this helps !
