It got a ton of comments and a lot of you wanted to see how I made it so this is what this post is about. Thank you so much for encouraging me to make this post as well. I was thrilled to see how many of you were interested in this process! Wal-Board Tools 2 in.
t Knife. Pro Grade Precision 9 in. The first step is to choose your plywood.
I got a 4 x 8 foot plywood board that had already been sanded. If you are planning on staining or painting directly onto the wood rather than adding a layer of t compound then get a higher quality plywood board. Next is the hardest step, deciding what size board s you want.
I Ppg nicole pie the 4 x 8 ft. If you go to Home Depot they will cut it there. Just make sure you triple-check your dimensions and bring a sketch of how you want it cut. I tried explaining what I wanted at first and am so glad I drew it out beforehand so I could show him what I was talking about. I guess I got to work on my communication skills!
Make sure you have a list of ideas before you start choosing your paint. I created a Pinterest board with some of my favorite ideas. I got two samples of pure white and one black. Just to make sure I could add and remove depth if I needed to. Then I picked one to two shades within a color pallet, a middle and a dark tone. As I painted I would use the white and black paint to lighten or darken. All of the colors I used are listed in the image captions below. Always go with the grain, not against it.
Use the grit harder grain sandpaper to remove the splinters or any rough surfaces. Once you get an almost smooth surface switch to the grit softer grain sandpaper to finish it. Dust it off and wipe it down with a dry paper towel. When you wipe it down the paper towel will also catch on any splinters.
Sand over the areas that need work and repeat this step. Choose the roughest side of the board if you still have splinters. Use the plastic knife and scoop about a cup of the t compound onto the board and start smearing aka spackling. I used a little bit of water when the t compound got too dry. This allowed me to smooth out and blend some areas that needed some more work. If you are having trouble, try using a metal t knife instead.
Let it dry, completely. Use the grit sandpaper to smooth the edges of the board. A light touch is best. Have your sponges, paint brushes, paint roller, water, and paper towels close by. Start by applying the lightest color you have with the brush then build up the depth and texture by adding the darker colors. If you want to apply just one layer use the paint roller. Use all of the tools you have to see what works best and then just keep going until you find yourself with your own handmade flat lay board!
Let it sit overnight to dry. I took one of my large sponges and ripped it into four imperfect pieces. I also kept some dry and wet others so that I could blend the paint and apply some texture. Having two brushes was very helpful. I liked being able to use the brush I was painting with to Ppg nicole pie paint while having a dry brush to create texture.
To add paint splatters I took a brush loaded with a bit of the darker paint and dipped it in the water. These backdrops were made with a purpose, to better my photography. Plus, it was a great way to do something with my free time during quarantine. Tag me on instagram nikkigotspirit or share a link to your own flatlay board in the comments.
