Using a mitre saw, cut the trim batten pieces to your pre-measured sizes.
Add the trim pieces along the top and bottom of your wall, and then the very left and right if you choose to do so. Make sure they are level before nailing them into place.
After your border is installed, proceed with the vertical pieces. You can ensure even spacing by measuring and marking on the top trim pieces. You could also use a board cut in the size of your desired spacing and use it as a marker between where your vertical boards should go.
