Questions & Answers

Have a Question?

Ask a Question
  • If I go with something like this, I'd like to stain it, but if I stain it, then I'd want a sheet of plywood up against the wall before this kit, right? Would I also be able to fit decorative molding against the battens and cross pieces?

    If you would like the wall behind board and batten to be stained, yes, plywood would work great. You could easily add some additional decorative moulding around the boards and battens to add some additional dimenion and detail. Each of those boards are 1/4" thick. Hope that helps! Thanks for your message!

Hello and good day I would like to say your product and your service so far seems to be very good This is my first time using you as a vendor The packaging was good happened quickly reasonable time fair price I strongly would recommend that even if I have an installed it yet but I already know it's going to look good because all the products are quality and it comes with an a video for people that are clueless how to do it and it makes your home look 10 times better it richens it right up

Quick and easy!

Ordered 3 kits for our bedroom. They arrived ahead of schedule, and I installed them last weekend. Really easy to put up, the longest part was the math to figure out spacing.

Best part? It's all actual wood. Love that.

Of the three kits, one of the footer boards was thicker than the other two. I didn't realize it until I had already nailed it on. Some wood filler and sanding fixed most of it, but keep an eye on that if you use more than 1 kit.

I also recommend a light sanding of the board faces and edges.

Installed prior to prime and paint, finished product.


I haven’t put it up yet but really happy with the quality
