Board and Batten


Board and Batten Im in love. So what do I do when I'm in love, I create and make it my own.
Look at all these lovely rooms. I feel like board and batten gives these rooms just the perfect added touch of class and I'm over the top in love with it.

And so it began I wish I would have gotten better before room pictures.


 I headed down to my favorite place "Home Depot" and had them cut (3) 4' x 8' sheet down to nine 4 inch stripes and two 5 inch stripes. I placed the horizontal pieces first then the vertical. My large 5 inch stripes went at the bottom.



When I was completed, I realized how much I hated the wall texture. When I did the master bedroom I contemplated covering it up but since it was a dark color it did not show so bad. I new I wanted to paint this rooms board and batten white and realized it was going to show all the bumps. So I went and purchased a large container of drywall mud and proceeded to dry wall over all the section. It went well, but it was not perfect. So I decide to fill each section in with wood. I should have done this in the first place and it would have saved my alot of time and energy. But I have a new skill drywall mudding not as hard as it looks....Sanding to make it perfect thats another store.


Once each board was up, I filled the gaps with paintable caulking and used wood filler for the finishing nail holes. Then sanded and sanded.


Now the fun part can start! Decorating
