A tub for two and no splashing? In a different post (Nov. '13) your installation description included ½" plywood and then builders felt. The pieces were sprayed then applied to the wall. Is the installation sprayed once in place to create the grout and cover the background? Thanks

Hi Lisa, yes you are correct. The way to do this is sheath the back wall completely with 1/2" plywood - this way the planks can land anywhere and have some backing for attachment. The planks could be painted while up in the wall - but I would for sure get a painting professional that can spray it - this is not a roller job. I just did a similar detail like this and ran the planks vertical - we used full gloss paint and it looks great. Black builders felt or black paint on the plywood will just ensure you do not see any plywood coloring and if the wood contracts.

It is wood and not tile - great coverage with a high quality paint will take care of it. This was for a master bathroom for grown ups, so assuming there will be no splashing, but who knows... You could also install 2 to 4" tall of solid surface material to wrap the top of the tub as well like a backsplash.
