Simple Changes To an EntryWay (Board and Batten)




Hey everyone!
Hoping your having a wonderful week and enjoying your summer.
Do you ever have a project or idea in your head and look forward to making it happen. With Pinterest and blogging it seems it can be never ending and so inspiring at the same time. I have wanted to give my entryway a little sprucing up but didn't want to spend a ton of money, after looking through many blogs I decided board and batten would be a good fit. Big bang for a small buck. 

My son in law (whom I adore) volunteered to spend a Saturday helping make my vision a reality. 

These are some before pics..not bad, but looking in from the living room kinda bored me.



After removing all the wall decor my son in law measured the length of the wall and determined how many battens we would use. Started at one end we measured, added liquid nails and used a nail gun to reinforce them. These are going nowhere!



My wall was just over 10ft so we used the same concept with the board (I used pine) across the battens. 



A little caulking and painting and it was done!










Afters....







(I have more pics but they look stretched so I apologize for the quality. I will share more soon...)

I love how it turned out!
Thanks to my sweet SIL for all your help! You helped make my vision a reality! Love ya!

Do you love board and batten? Have you tried it in your home? I think my bathroom needs an update next...

Have a wonderful week!

  1. I love your entryway's new look! (And how blessed are you that you have such a sweet son in law?) I was google searching thrifting and market and ended up here, and I am so glad I did! I found a new Jesus loving bloggy friend, and I got some great inspiration too. Your newest follower... Make it a wonderful day, Jules from http://www.bles-id.blogspot.com
