bathroom and beadboard
I guess this topic is a little older but just incase your still looking:
I just finished putting beadboard up in my bathroom. I used the seperate pieces as opposed to the sheets. I thought the sheets looked cheap, but after painting the probably would be O.K. The pieces I bought were 8' long and about 3-4 inces wide, I cut them to 32" lengths to cover only the bottom portion of the wall. I cut them to length with a miter saw. Of course there were some pieces that had to trimmed on the width, the best way to do that is with a table saw, but I did not have that, so I carefully cut them with a jig saw, not perfect bot it was in the corners and any imperfections were covered by the piece on the joining wall.
I used consruction adhesive and a nail gun to put them up, I cannot imagine how long it would have taken if I tried to nail or screw them up without the nail gun.
I primed and put one coat of paint on before putting them up, then caulked and put the last coat of paint on after.
