Using your tape measure, measure the wall area you will be working with to determine how many panels you need.
If you're around a doorway, make trim pieces to cover the edges of the panels that will be exposed. Measure and cut strips of wood and install them using construction adhesive and nails.
Determine where you want to start. With a jig saw, utility knife or circular saw, cut off the first piece so you can start with a nice, even row.
Apply construction adhesive on the back of the panel (image 1), and attach it to the wall (image 2).
For extra hold, screw in a 2-inch wood screw into the wall stud to help keep the panel in place (image 1). Continue this process along the first row (image 2).
When you get to a receptacle, measure the distance and transfer those measurements onto the appropriate piece. Continue this complete process until you get to the last row.
