Thanks guys…the boards are 1×6. They will be hun horizontal. I plan on starting at the bottom and working up so the bottom boards can somewhat support the boards above as I climb the wall. I planned on painting between the lines with a darker brown paint. Just wasnt sure if I needed to bulk up the size of the nails… I was nervous 2.5” finish nails would be too “weak”.

It sounds like you plan to butt the edges of the boards up tight to each other. Have you thought about the potential for expansion?

I did plan to leave a slight gap…what would you recommend?
