Just popping in to say a quick hello. We had some very special people here for 2 days this past week with lots of camera’s and a hair and makeup crew. I’m not allowed to share any pictures yet but there were 20 of us in our house for a 2 day photo shoot. It was pretty exciting! Hopefully I can share sometime in November.
My parents were away this past weekend on the hunt for some land in NH and while they were gone, I ripped apart our “transition” room that is in between our kitchen and family room. I’ve decided to make it a mudroom & reading room. This is the room that has the diy barn closet doors that my dad and I made last year.
I posted some pictures also on facebook this weekend as I was emptying out the room. This little o’l project is similar to when I sawzalled my couch in half in order to make it smaller. It was done on impulse out of sheer frustration and being aggravated with how it looked. You ever do that? I seem to do it once a month! I had some MDF boards and pine left over from our dining room makeover so I decided board and batten would be free and simple enough to get the job completed in a weekend.
I spaced the boards about 18 inches apart.
The board and batten is all up and 1 coat of paint has been applied. I hope to get the rest of the room painted and finished tomorrow. Check out our board and batten tutorial if you are interested in adding a quick and inexpensive wall treatment to a room.
