Referring to measurements on note pad, mark beadboard with level and pencil, then cut beadboard to size with table saw (Image 1). Take note of where beadboard grooves will butt up (Image 2).
Sand and Paint
Using medium-grit sanding block, sand front of beadboard. Wipe away dust with damp cloth. Using the roller, apply two coats of exterior paint to front and back of beadboard. With a brush, add two coats of paint to front of trim.
Apply silicone adhesive to all four edges of beadboard, then fit beadboard into grooved trim pieces. Attach all four trim pieces with miters lined up. Clamp beadboard panels to trim pieces, let silicone dry for at least two hours.
