D.I.Y. Wainscotting

I realized the other day that I've never posted these panels that my husband and I built in our last house about 4 years ago.
It's quite common now, people are doing everywhere now and it's really easy do!
So sorry that I don't have pictures of the "how to" but it's so easy I can explain it and you should get the jest.

1- Paint the wall 3 to 4 ft up white OR you could paint it a light beige if you wanted.
2- Take off the bottom baseboards if you don't already have baseboards that are an inch thick
3- You can buy 6x12 boards at Home Depot or Lowes and paint them white.
4- Create the "panels" above by nailing the bottom baseboards first. Then you can decide how far apart you want the panels to be. I think we did 18" apart.
5-Next top it off with another one more board

The end!
or you could put a shelf on top of the top one too!
