Our front room was bright and whimsical. This weekend I was ready to make a change.
I was craving something clean and refreshing.
I had helped my friend Heather hang board and batten trim in her master bedroom and she gave me all of her extra supplies, which was super nice! I loved how her room turned out and wanted to do something similar in my front room. This weekend The Joe and I celebrated our anniversary. We went to a football game(something he really enjoys) and worked on projects(something I really enjoy). It was a wonderful way to spend time together and make some fun memories!
Here are a couple of the process pics. It was actually a very fast project. We had everything tacked to the walls within an hour and a half. We used 4'' boards for the top and 2'' boards for the battens. We chopped the bottoms of the 2'' boards at a 45 degree angle so they would match the base molding.
To space the boards evenly, we cut 2 board that were 17'' long and held them in between the battens while we tacked them into place. One near the top and one near the bottom. It was really easy and we didn't have to worry about measuring everything!
After saying goodbye to the bright yellow wall and painting everything I felt like the room needed a little something more so I made a shelf to one of the walls.
I was worried that the shelf might hurt the look of the room, but I actually love how it all came together!
The paint colors are antique white and pebble gray by Glidden.
It feels much cleaner to me! Just what I was hoping for.
I'd like to add a dark gray throw pillow to the chair and figure out a good window treatment,
possibly making shutters?? I would love to be able to figure that out!
