Board & Batten

Last summer I decided I wanted to change up our front entryway.  After seeing online a technique called "board & batten" I knew we could do it with our amateur wood skills.  We did all our measurements and I went to Home Depot and bought all the wood and had them cut it for me.  Easy peesy!

The most tedious part was caulking.  I would put it on and then use my finger to make sure it filled every crack.  By the time I was done, all my fingers were bloody from being rubbed raw!  Ouch!  But I loved the way it all turned out!



It really changes the whole look of the front of the house.  I love it!!  And the best thing is it was pretty inexpensive to do!  It was less than $100!




Have you tried board & batten yet?
