Determine the height of the wainscoting that you want to apply on your wall. Mark the desired height on the wall with a pencil and double check that it is level all around.
While wearing eye goggles, cut wainscoting to specific height with a table saw.
Start in one corner of your room. Apply “Insta-Grab” all-purpose glue with a caulk gun to each piece of wainscoting, and align one next to the other on the wall, checking that they are level as you go.
As you work around the room, trim wainscoting pieces accordingly with a jigsaw to fit corners and other trim.
Once wainscoting is attached to the wall, secure each piece at the top and bottom with a framing nail gun. Wear eye goggles.
Apply two coats of paint to wainscoting. Then paint baseboard and cap molding and allow to dry.
TIP: Purchase pre-primed wainscoting for faster installation.
Put on safety goggles and nail baseboard and cap molding in place to finish the look.
