The answer: buy a fence board and put it in the wall.
That’s what one shopper did after discovering the $3.99 boards in a local Wal-Mart store.
“I had a feeling it was going to be an issue and I didn’t know what to do,” said Katie Bowers, a shopper at the nearby Wal-Marts.
Bowers was shocked when she discovered the boards were not waterproof.
“It didn’t seem to be waterproof at all, but I figured it was a good idea to try it anyway,” she said.
“And it turned out to be.”
Bowers said she bought two of the boards and set them up inside her kitchen to keep out the elements.
She was surprised by how well the boards worked.
“You could put a whole wall of it in my kitchen and it wouldn’t be an inch out of place,” she told WLWT News.
“That was pretty impressive to me.”
Bows said she will now use the boards as a wall of her new bathroom, but said she was surprised to see that they could withstand water.
She’s also impressed with the product’s durability.
“They seem to last a lifetime,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
“Thank you to my local Walmart for the boards that are designed to be a wall and stand up to a little bit of abuse.
We’ll be using them for years to come.”
