No, not a little Bed and Breakfast... but a little Board and Batten. I said I was going to do it HERE. I watched as my husband went to work, measuring cutting, nailing and caulking. Finally my part came at the end by patching the holes, sanding and painting.
I am so happy how it turned out.
Here is my wall before we did anything.
I couldn't make up my mind. I wanted blue, but when I painted it on the wall it was too baby blue. I was going for a gray blue, but it didn't turn out that way. So then I painted on a dark grey. But it was too dark. So I settled on a color I knew wouldn't fail me... Granite Boulder by Behr. I used this color in my kitchen in my previous house.
After measuring, Matt, nailed the end pieces and top piece to the wall. Then he nailed the shelf on, and attached an under piece to make it look nice and more sturdy.Then he attached the vertical boards every 28in, then the horizontal board 12in down.Matt then caulked the sides. I filled the holes, sanded, and painted the boards the same color as my walls.
Once everything was dry, I decorated... what I love best.
Even the cat took a minute out of her busy life to admire our handy work...
