Character Building

Create architectural interest with wood screen moulding. Low cost for a high-end look!

Shopping List
Here’s How
  • Paint the wall your desired colour. Let dry.
  • Measure the length and height of your wall to determine the size of the largest moulding panels you can create, taking into account the spacing between them (in the example shown, the top panels are 3’ x 6’ and the bottom panels are 3’ x 1’ with 5” spacing between panels and 1’ spacing to the floor
  • Take the height and width of the top panel and subtract one foot from its length and height to get the measurements for the first interior panel (2’ x 5’ in the example shown), and repeat again for the final interior panel (1’ x 4’ in the example shown).
  • With your list of measurements for each panel, begin cutting the tops, bottoms and sides of each panel with mirrored 45° angles on each side of the screen moulding.
  • With all pieces cut and ready, measure up from the floor where you want the first bottom panel to begin, level the bottom moulding piece and nail into place.
  • Level and nail into place the left, right and top pieces to create a moulding panel.
  • Continue with all remaining panels, using equal spacing between them.
  • It is easier and faster if you paint the cut moulding before nailing onto the wall, however it can also be painted after it’s on the wall.

What you'll need

Tools
  • mitre saw
  • brad nailer
  • paint brushes
Materials
  • four 4” x 4” x 8’ spruce or pine boards (not pressure-treated)
  • 1 1/4” brad nails 1283-024
  • Beauti-Tone Designer Series paint in matte or satin (Colours used - Minty Muse CL08-0 and Diamond Mine CL52-0)
Cut to the ending

Here's How

  1. ​Set up a stop block 3/8” away from your mitre saw blade to make quick, repetitive cuts.
  2. Cut 3 of the 8’ boards into 3/8” slices.
  3. Move the stop block 3/4” away from the blade and adjust the saw for a 10-degree angle.
  4. Cut the remaining 8’ board into larger, angled biscuits by alternating the saw blade’s angle from 10 degrees to 0 degrees so that each piece has one flat side.
  5. Thin your paint with water at a ratio of 1:1 and paint the slices in your desired colour. For a slightly more dramatic look, paint the angled biscuits in a different colour (shown: Minty Muse CL08-0/Diamond Mine CL52-0). Let dry.
  6. Using a brad nailer and starting your first row at floor level, pin each slice to the wall.
  7. When you have your desired width, move up to the next row and continue until you’ve filled your space.
