DIY Board and Batten

5

February 5, 2014 by Terry

Last summer after giving our family room fireplace a make over, I decided that I would also give our living room a make over of sorts as well.   Turns out some projects that seem large and intimidating are actually extremely easy and simple…..

This is a picture during the whole process…. I didn’t have a blog at the time so I didn’t think to take before photos.  These are just pics I like to send to my husband while he’s away working … makes his blood pressure rise a little! :0)…

So let me just say this…Hind sight is definitely 20/20… While measuring and cutting the wood was super easy, painting AFTER putting the boards up WASN’T!!!  If I ever do this again (and I most likely will…fair warning Trent! LOL!) I would most certainly paint my wall white BEFORE hanging the boards!  Soooo time consuming if you don’t.  Next time I would also caulk with white caulking after painting, not before to give it that seamless look.

IMG_1449Such an easy, cheap project to update any room and give it a little character!  I like how it added interest and a little wow to our living room without doing a major renovation.  This only took me one afternoon to do….soooo easy!

The only thing I didn’t think of before doing this is that now I really have to limit what I hang on the walls so as not to make it too busy in the room with too much going on.  I opted for just a simple round mirror over the couch.

IMG_0709DSCN1111Hope your having a great week!  I will be spending more time at the clinic for the month of February filling in for one of the girls lucky enough to escape winter and go somewhere warmer….bitter am I?….Okay, maybe a tiny bit jealous!  I’m not sure how many projects I will get done but I hope to share something new with you soon.

Take care!
