Prep the wall with drywall, making sure it's sanded smooth.
Spread a thin layer of thinset on the wall with a trowel (Image 1), as well as a thin layer on the back of the veneer panel (Image 2). Apply pressure to make sure panel is secure to the wall (Image 3).
TIP: Using larger 2x4 panels will add a unique look and save time on tiling over traditional smaller panels.
If you're tiling around shower drains or fixtures, use tin snips to cut panels to fit.
Once the tile is set, you can either let it dry or grout the entire surface. If you choose to grout the entire surface, apply grout with a float. Remove excess grout with a wet sponge.
