Faux Plank Wall In The Worlds Smallest Half Bath

Plank walls and faux plank walls are all over the place and we had to put one on the sink wall in the worlds smallest half bath, upstairs at the mountain cottage. 
Faux plank walls are another easy and inexpensive way to add interest in a small space. 

Since we planned on painting it, we bought a half sheet of  1/8th inch hardboard and cut it into 4" wide strips.
I then painted them Benjamin Moore Balboa Mist (which is the adjoining bedroom paint color)

Mr. DIY glued them to the wall with construction adhesive using a scrap of the hardboard as spacers. 

He started above the faux plank wall above the countertop and continued up to the ceiling. 

When it was all finished, I touched up the faux plank wall with a foam brush and applied a coat of paint in the spaces between the boards. 

Can't wait to show you the entire finished wall with the custom medicine cabinet (with rustic frame door) and the finished countertop/apron. 
I just ordered some....well, you'll have to wait and see....

We're getting excited about this project now that we're nearly finished with it.

Hope you stop by to see it!
