This weekend I installed T-111 along the back wall of my sheetrocked garage. I was tired of my garage "toys" (e.g. wheelbarrow, lawnmower, etc.) banging the sheetrock and marking it up. By installing 3/8 th inch think T-111 along the wall and capping it with 1"x3" strapping I was able to create a wainscoting type look.
T-111 is a textured sheet of plywood like material that has a 1/2" verticle trim line every 8 inches or so. It comes in 4' x 8' sheets.
To cap the top of the T-111, I cut out a wedge of material out of 1"x3" strapping it and set it on top of the T-111.
