Fall home tour (check it out here if you missed it). Today, I just wanted to share with you a little before and after of the board and batten, and a little snippet of how I did it. I've done so many board and batten tutorials in the past, I figure another full one isn't that necessary :)
I have a vision to see board and batten go half way up my full two walls in our living room, but am seriously being a chicken butt and not getting it done. I have wanted to do this for like 4 years now. It's just that if I screw it up, I can't just paint over it...I literally have to repaint two 20 foot walls. I know I could always match the paint, but in my many experiences in the past, it is very hard to completely mesh them together to make in seamless. So, anyway. This was my first step. I knew I wanted two corner walls in here a shorter board and batten, and I figure those would be easy to repaint if necessary, and truthfully, it wasn't a huge project like the other two full walls would be ;)
The picture above and the one below are the two walls I decided to do first.
