Textured wall hole repair
My home has a rather large hole in the wall from, where a artificial fireplace use to be. It is on a artificial brick textured wall, I would like to cover the hole with some beadboard. I am planning on building a patch, for the hole out of 2x4's and plywood, so there is so strangth in the middle of the board. My question is how can I make the beadboard nice and smooth when it is on such a uneven surfice. I am trying to avoid replastering the whole wall. Thanks for any info sorry if this is hard to understand

Shims and a straight edge, such as a 4 foot level or a straight board. Shim as needed and put a small amount (dollop) of pl400 glue, adheasive (uses a caulking gun) to keep it in place.

How about firing strips one at floor and one at top of beadboard and one in between.
Then you can shim these to plumb line and just dress the top with some woodwork.
