Wow, that's a beautiful kitchen. Congratulations on the fine work!

Do you mind three questions?

I assume, perhaps incorrectly, that you used sheet beadboard, not individual planks. If so ...

1. Did you find it difficult to cover the seams between sheets, or did the paint hide them nicely?

2. Did you install the sheets right over existing drywall?

3. Did you install the sheets with glue or nails, or both?

Many thanks, and again kudos on the terrific looking job.
