I am building two interior closets using metal studs.  Instead of dry wall I would like to cover with paintable plywood.  Can anyone recommend type, thickness and how to affix to the metal studs?  Thanks

The house is an 1889 Victorian with ornate everything.  In between the two closets I have a fireplace mantel.  I will be painting the woodwork white and want to incorporate the closets into the scheme.  I am thinking a paintable plywood would be a better fit than drywall.

If you are interested in restoration type improvement, remember that in those times nobody had closets.  Clothes were hung and stored in chiffarobes!

Your time and money would better be spent in antique stores.

I'd think that beadboard wainscot would be a better choice than either one.
