    Those picket fencing boards are great and usually cost about a buck and a quarter for a 6" wide x 4' long board. Nice for paneling or trim work over more beefy framework. I would overlap cracks if you live in a cold region to keep out drafts but other than that you are good to go. They will weather to a grey color if you decide not to stain or paint.
