(comfortable guitar music) – [Tresha] whats up guys,welcome again to the channel. It can be Tresha, and i’m excitedto share a further great DIY concept with you utilising 3D wall panels. That you could location thesepanels in your entryway, might be at the back of your couch,or in the back of your tv stand, you identify it, the probabilities are never-ending of how you can use them. However i’ll exhibit you one more way. You recognize me, i have toshow you an extra way. If you do not need toadhere it to the wall, this is an substitute for you. I desired to present a shoutout to CSI Wall Panels for sending me this % for me to take a look at. It comes 12 in a %. The squares are about 191/2 inches by way of 19 1/2 inches, so it covers, often likethree feet by 9 feet of wall space. So you’ll in most cases want extra should you desired to do a function wall, however for this challenge,you most effective desire a %. And this is what itlooks like within the inside of, you have complete instructional materials in case you desired to adhere it to the wall, and it additionally comes with spacers as good.Earlier than you start utilising the panels, you wanna be certain it can be within the room where you are going toinstall it for 48 hours so it might get adjusted to the atmosphere. I chose this particulardesign, it can be referred to as hole, considering I inspiration it was once very interesting, however they have got, if youdon’t like this design, they’ve so many extra to be had, so make sure you investigate out the internet site. I will put the link in thedescription field below so you will see that exactlywhat i am speaking about. And i feel it comesin two extraordinary colors, but the person who I selected isin normal off-white color. For this undertaking you will want a base, and i selected wooden for this.So I went to house Depot andgot a skinny piece of plywood. I want to say it can be like half of an inch, less than 1/2 an inch in thickness, and it was kind of big, so I desired to divideit in half of so i can have two panels on the wall. Moreover to the plywood,I additionally bought 4 strips of the outside corner molding. These are gonna be use toconceal the sides of the plywood. So the very first thing that I didwas frivolously sand the sides of the timber, I noticed thatthere had been some rough edges, and i desired to make surethat that used to be delicate. Oh, and be sure to removeall the labels as good. Subsequent i’m going to gluethe molding to the edges of the plywood usingRapidFuse wooden Adhesive. It sets in 30 seconds,it remedies in 30 minutes, and it’s a robust bond. I like it considering that it is quick. This is what it appears likewith the molding on it, it looks a lot cleaner now.I made up our minds to stain the woodas adverse to painting it, it is utterly up to you what you come to a decision, but I used this Minwax WoodFinish Penetrating Stain in English Chestnut. You conveniently wish to stir up your can and paint within the direction of the grain. Ensure you follow the guidelines on the again of the can. I most effective used one coat.I waited about two minutes after which wiped the stain away with a rag. So here is what it appears like,it takes about eight hours for the stain to dry. It’s a lot faster ifyou made up our minds to color it. So after I do this, I wantto comply with it up with a timber protectant, which is called Polyurethane. You want to be certain tostir up the can fairly excellent before you begin utilising it, and use a smooth brush whilst you do this, don’t use the equal one asyou did with the timber stain, and follow the grain. I extremely recommendreading the instructional materials on the again of the can so you might be aware of precisely everything that you just have got to do. While the bottom is drying, I’mdoing to paint the 3D panels using a sponge brush. And that i had some craftpaint already readily available. It is an acrylic paint via craftsmart. I’m simply gonna pour alittle little bit of the paint into my paper plate, andjust work off of that.You do not want a wholelot for this project. When you notice, i’m just putting paint on the tip of the comb. With your 3D panel,you’re simply going to start through doing a top level view of thetop a part of the design. And then, just color the within of it, or paint the inside of it, ‘scuse me. It’s simply simpler that approach, so as to stay inside the line. Guys, when you’ve got somethingthat’s weighing to your mind, it is a high-quality challenge todo when you consider that while you paint, you disregard about the whole thing,to be sincere with you. Like i am just targeted onmaking definite I paint in between the strains, that’s it! (laughing) I particularly suppose paintingthe prime of the panel enhances the 3D effect. What do you suppose? So the final factor that Idid used to be glue the 3D panels to the base, and what you want to do is verify where you wish to have it.What I did was once house the panels to be three and half of inchesfrom the top and the backside and two and 1/four on the facet. Now that I determinedwhere I desired the panels, I just took a penciland marked the corners, flipped it over, and brought E6000 to the again. Flipped it again over, waited24 hours before the glue dried, and then hung it on thewall, and that’s it, guys. It is a technique to have some particularly cool, intriguing 3D wall artwork thatdoesn’t ought to be affixed.
