okay – since you do not have any experience with what you are doing
and there is no way to tell what will happen to the wall after you leave,
it is strongly suggested that you go to your Big Box Store and get a couple of pounds
of #8×3 in. Phillips Bugle-Head Coarse Thread Wood Screws and screw each board to the studs.
this will relieve your tension level and provide your customer a good and safe product.
the screws can be driven just a tad below the surface of the wood and will be almost invisible.
if you and your client are really that picky about the fastener being hidden, you can get some
wood filler the same color s the boards and fill over each screw head.
what you need to do for now is get a spare board and practice to see what will work for you within your skill set.
