Continuing. If you want to do the vertical screen, you would need to also have a bottom frame piece attached to the floor. Depending on your floor type you can nail it
or use liquid nails.

In the vertical case, I used each plank with 1" side facing me and 2" side facing the wall. I used each spacing buy simply placing a piece of the wood in between each next plank to space it out evenly.

Next step: using a cut off part of the plank measure 1" distance between the one that is attached to the wall and your next one and secure it with a nail gun used diagonally to the bottom and top frame. Continue for your width. Last plank has to be 2" longer to close up the frame, attaching it to the edges of the ceiling and floor base frame.

Putty the gaps, let it dry, sand it and stain it or paint.

Let me know if you want to know how to do the horizontal one.

I was thinking vertical. Hmm... might be time to invest in a nail gun!
