Miter cut the trim pieces. Paint them and set them aside to dry. Apply a second coat if necessary.
Cut the half sheet of plywood into twelve 10" x 10" squares.
Attach the trim to the luan panel using wood glue and small nails. Weigh down the trim and let set up for 24 hours if necessary.
Add one side of the hook-and-loop strip to the back of each T-shirt square, then attach the other side of the hook-and-loop strip onto the luan panel. Push them all into place.
Attach the T-shirt panel to wall by finding the studs and putting the T-shirt squares over the screws.
