Last week I added these boxes to my kitchen walls to resemble panelling. It's not rocket science, but it was a lot of work (10 days start to finish, fitting it in where I could). Here is a summary: Materials: compound miter saw (mine was $70 at Lowes), molding, wood glue, caulk, caulk gun, sanding equipment, and paint. Plan out the design and measure where you want your boxes. Set your saw to 45 degrees, and start cutting the lengths you have measured. PLEASE don't cut off your finger. And PLEASE wear goggles - the pieces do fly everywhere. I cut one box at a time because it got confusing cutting so many different lengths at once. Then I just placed them on the floor where they would go.
After the cutting was done, I used a level and wood glued them to the wall (because they are lightweight plastic - with wood, you would nail them).
Here is a work in progress photos:
I'm new at the painter's caulk, so mine was fairly messy. You can see some of it reflected on the wall here. I had to sand it off later. The paint is Cloud White semi-gloss by Ben Moore.
Today, I'm FINISHED. And I have to say, I am so happy to be done with this project. It took absolutely ALL of my skills and patience. It was not easy, and not fun, but I love the results. The kitchen is so much lighter and brighter. Here is how it looks today:
