DIY Driftwood Backsplash – Installation

Installing it is very simple! Just add some panel adhesive and attach each plank to the wall with 23 gauge pin nails. Start with the first row, against the side wall. Work your way down the counter top, making sure that the planks remain level with each other.

These planks are tongue and groove so they will interlock on each side, top and bottom. The tongue and groove on the first plank (wall side) should be cut off.

DIY Driftwood Backsplash – Cutting an Edge

If you have a 45° counter wall, cut one edge at 22.5

then, cut the return side at 22.5° as well.

DIY Driftwood Backsplash – Adding Trim

The end of her island is rounded so, we cut a 1/2″ stick of trim

and attached it to the end of the wall with adhesive and pin nails. We dry-brushed some white chalk paint on the trim pieces to tie them in with the drift wood. Once the first row was complete, we worked our way up, row by row. Make sure to stagger the seams from one row to the next.
