Mat Crisp from Lifecentre in Ottawa, ON brings us these short, woodsy walls.
Mat got inspired by a few different designs here and around the Internet.
He spend about $300 on materials and with the help of a few great volunteers, they were able to have this up and running in 1.5 days.
To create this they fastened 1×4’s onto some 2×4 frames. With the extra scraps, they put a darker stain on those and fastened them randomly to the walls. The spacing between the boards was a bit bigger than they would have liked (5/8), but it worked out to their advantage. Now they can stick the leftover 1×4 boards in those gaps to act as shelves.
Because they don’t change their entire set very often, they just change out what’s on the walls for each series. Example: February was candles, March was hearts, and April/May will have a bunch of 2′ wooden crosses that will be hung on the walls that are painted white and will bear the names of all those they want to see come to Christ in black Sharpie marker.
