    "Cover the walls"... But, but???!!!

    They told me to do it. "Cover the walls"!
    "Everything green needs covered!"
    If you know about Venetian Plaster you will understand that it is not cheap. I don't know how they do it but it looks like they have skimmed the walls with different tones ( color ) of sheetrock mud with short slashing motions, from what I have heard about six or seven times and then they do something to it to give it a smooth finish, almost like lacquer on mahogany, after the 400 grit. I will try to get some pictures of the Venetian walls I did not cover. Yep, my job to cover about 12 - 4' x8' sheets worth of Venetian Plaster. Can you guess why?
    I know........

    Well, I'd guess that it may be cracking, but that would mean someone did a poor job installing it. It is also hard as a rock, so if they got tired of the look they may want it covered, but I'd think it would be easier to replace the sheetrock.

    In other words, I have no idea why you are covering it!

    They didn't like the color?

    It is a new house, never been lived in. I am helping them with the "make ready". Oh yeah, by the way, I needed to cover 97" above the wainscote, below the crown, two windows exempt , with two arch top doors and a set in lower cabinets with a more shallow set of uppers above, recessed in the wall opposite the windows.

    Here is the room with the plywood walls. Two arch top doors, an inset cabinet with uppers and lowers, and two windows "Do Not Cover Windows!"

    A clue to the reason I was asked to cover the walls with wood can be seen in photo 4 and 5.

    You are both close. Let me try to make the questions a bit more concise and thus the answers can be more accurate. #1 What pattern, #2 what material, and #3 why the plywood?

    i love the trim detail in the corner shaz! does the backband miter together?
    is this new construction?
    pattern looks like a herringbone that you`re laying out? can`t see the grain in your photos to guess at species...and i`m guessin` the ply is to fasten to?
