From Mike: We took our inspiration from The Long Weave. We had pallets for the past 4 years and decided it was time for a change. At the very beginning, we found out that running the horizontal wouldn’t work, so we changed to run them vertically and it turned out better than expected.
First, we had to paint all the walls with flat black paint.
We used white 4mm Coroplast board and cut it into 12″ X 48″ sections. We used a table saw with a fine tooth blade to make sure we cut everything straight. We attached it to the wall with black velcro and made a couple of template jigs to keep our 4″ spacing consistent. With some patience, coffee, and an OCD band member we were able to keep the uniformity of the design across multiple surfaces.
10 sheets of Coroplast= $200
5 gallons of flat black paint= $100
5 rolls of velcro= $100
Everything else was repurposed from prior designs.
