    Mybasement has studs and insulation. I need to either redo the wallboard (significant damage) or find something else. I don't want a fine finished look, this will be a pottery studio, so walls that I can wash would be optimal. I found a product called Brightboard, but it seems to only be available to installers.

    Are there any easy to install, just plastic panels that you'd recommend?

    My brother used it on two walkout basement doors over PT plywood that we fabbed up. He pegged it every 16" inches or so. It does buckle a little from the expanding and contracting of the wood as it is a southern exposure. If used inside with liquid nails over sheetrock, it should be good to go.


    So if a pot does not work out you could slam it into the wall guilt free. That would be awesome, like angry art or something. Maybe anger management therapy. The possibilities...
