Applique Spandrel Usage Photo We're on your side
It may seem unusual for a company to teach a technique that may cost it thousands of dollars in sales each month, but we're serious about trying to live by the Golden Rule. If we know a way to save money, we don't hesitate sharing it, even if it means lower sales for us!

The Applique Spandrel Technique
Cut plain boards to length for installation between Porch Posts (where Spandrels would typically be used). For extra depth, add 3/4" thick narrow boards to the face of each at all four edges (front and back, or only on the front). Paint these smaller boards a contrasting color (the white border seen in the photos). This border not only adds depth, but makes installation of the main boards easier.

Then pre-paint our inexpensive Appliques in the same contrasting color and screw these equally along each board. If spaced fairly close, the overall effect is very good.

See other examples of Appliques used on porch beams at Porch Examples 41, 49, and 50.
