Hey all! So as I was doing work on the kitchen island the other day I recognized there is 1 piece of wood I use all. the. time during our residence. I’ve used it for many years on many tasks. I know you’ve heard me speak about it if you’ve been about for awhile.
It’s the incredible, versatile and oh-so-cheap lattice wood:
Thrilling things eh? I use it Consistently. It is good and thin and it is the best way to finish off projects. I’ve constantly located mine at Lowe’s and liked that they offered two different sizes. Each had been one/four inch thick but 1 was about 1 1/eight wide and another was one 3/8. Now our retailer only carries the thinner model. I ended up at Menards the other night for the island to uncover a larger size and they did not disappoint. (They truly have quite an comprehensive molding segment and I really don’t know why I don’t just go there more.) They have the two widths I talked about plus 1 that is even greater at one 3/four wide.
Anyway…here are a handful of of the many techniques I’ve employed this inexpensive wood in excess of the many years. I created a quite simple board and batten look in my son’s space with it:
I liked this simply because it was super easy to work with (it is easily reduce with a handsaw and miter box) and it was thin enough that I did not have to exchange the baseboards to make this appear perform – it sits fairly flush against them.
I’ve framed out a great deal of artwork with it:
I did not even stain that one! Just nailed it on.
The nautical artwork for the Bub’s bathroom was trimmed out with some of it as well:
And our huge IKEA map got a little detail that tends to make the entire issue pop by framing it out with the lattice and staining it:
I’ve also created artwork (like my Pottery Barn knock off) with it as properly!:
It is the ideal piece of wood to trim out tasks like the end of our developed ins:
And when I take down doors in our home (which I do a whole lot), I use it to cover up the holes in which the hinges hung:
One of my preferred projects of all time with this thin wood is our new family area fireplace:
The fronts and side of the fireplace and built ins are trimmed out with the lattice.
It utilized to run about \$4 for eight feet but recently it’s nearly \$5. Nevertheless a excellent deal to give projects a finished look. It is lightweight, straightforward to reduce and is so thin it doesn’t consider up a ton of space. Really like this things!
I know some of you have had difficulty finding it more than the many years – it’s always in the molding aisle in the pine spot. Like I stated, Menards has the best selection I’ve observed but all the hardware retailers carry it. 🙂
Have you ever utilized this trim? It’s also Great for hiding imperfections, which is why I used it on the island. A lot more on that quickly!
