I should be posting a fabulous picture of my panelled wall, well I'm NOT! Like always, before we start a project I already have it planned out in my mind how I want things to go and so does my husband and his plays out completely different [usually with a train wreck involved]! Of course I was the one who found the MDF in the correct size, had the nice man at Home Depot cut them to size and even loaded all twelve 8' pieces in my Flex and carried them home. It started off great when I woke up last Wednesday to all of the boards on the wall...progress [considering my husband always over thinks everything and takes twice as long to do ANYTHING]! So, I left him on his day off to cover the holes from the brad nails [a small hole I might add] and the caulk the seams. Well he covered them alright!!! With a huge amount of compound. I told him to use paintable caulk, which would have done the job without all of the sanding. But George listening to me....nnnaaaa! He spent the day sanding down compound and when I came home I looked at the wall and thought..."Houston we have a problem!" I explained several times that using paintable caulk would have done the job [the right way], but he insisted it would come out okay once we painted. Now mind you we were planning on using a semi-gloss paint, which shows the slightest imperfections. To prove him wrong I painted the wall. Long story short...he has a lot more sanding to do!
