Wooden Planks (technically, the construction industry would refer to this as lumber) are craftable blocks which can be used for a multitude of different recipies and are essential to progress through Minecraft as a whole. Choose wood that was previously used in an exterior application and thoroughly inspect it for deterioration of any kind. Using reclaimed wood is definitely on trend these days, but for me it is a timeless look. I had to tear out the carpet, pull up the carpet tack strips and millions of staples, scrape off the dropped ceiling texture on the subfloor, patch holes in the sub floor, sand and sweep. So I didn’t fill the holes, paint or worry about any imperfections on the edges/corners of the planked walls.
There is a special primer for subfloors (I couldn’t find it on the website, but it’s in the same aisle as the tiles at Lowes) to be able to stick vinyl tiles to them. You can get them at Home Depot or Lowe’s – they are similar to the beadboard planks (like on my island ) but without the bead. Then the vanity will get installed, boards/baseboards will go up, the top will get trimmed out with a ledge, the light changed out and new paint color on the walls (a long story).
I’ve seen a few ways of doing this wood wall treatment and I just like to use this stuff because it’s so easy to install and I don’t have to have anything cut down. I do have to say, the wood this time was just AWFUL as far as quality was concerned. I am still using every bit I can because I have walls and sections that are smaller so I can cut down the good parts out of the wood. As such, sticks should no longer be an item that can be crafted from wood planks.
What a shame that the recent wood bundles are not up the quality of the old ones… but how lucky that you were able to use the older ones when you were staining, finishing naturally! It is real wood on the walls, and the floor looks just as real.. These vinyl planks are very impressive!! He worked on that throughout the day.. the hardest part was the little pieces he had to fit in around some weird walls… He did a great job and it looks so pretty! Up next: the living room and hallway floor.. We’ll be laying the vinyl planks on those floors, too! Lol).. They were very helpful to us when we purchased the flooring.. Lowes knows!!
I bet someone at Lowes might be able to tell you how to deal with it (We should have asked. Then I painted a layer of the Old Henry’s floor primer on it before laying the planks. That being said, once we started making changes in our kitchen , we knew that this wood planked wall project was going to be part of it too. Our larger, straight wall was super easy and only took about 20 minutes to finish, but once it came to the walls where the windows and door were, things got a little trickier.
