painting plywood beadboard panels

In about 3--4 weeks contractors are coming to completely renovate our master bath. Since I wanted bead board instead of tile, I have purchased the bead board panels and am preparing to paint them. I have 6 4x4' panels. The problem is I don't have enough space to let them stand each on its own to dry and cure. I am using a combination paint and primer.

Is there any way I can stack them one on top of another and leave some space so that there is some air between the panels?

Thanks in advance for any ideas

First, I'd recommend using a dedicated primer, preferably an oil base undercoater. Latex primers don't always seal the wood good enough which could result in tannin bleed. Primer and paint combos don't do a good primer job.

You could place a stick between the boards although where the stick is it's apt to stick to the primer or paint and would likely require that small portion to be sanded and redone.
