        • Candi

          Do you have more info on your T&G wall?ReplyCancel

          • Hi Candi! We don’t, but we did install it ourselves over our drywall using pine tongue & groove, liquid nails, and a nail gun. We then filled the nail holes, caulked, primed it 2-3 times to ensure we were covering the knots good and then painted the same color as our trim color which is Valspar High Hide White.ReplyCancel
