At last, it is done. Oh my word I am so loving this wall treatment in my little boy’s room! I’ve always loved the paint color (Valspar’s ‘La Fonda Villa Fountain’), yet somehow this wall treatment not only mellows all the intense teal blue but also provides such beautiful contrast. Heart!
I know there are so many ‘how to’ tutorials in blog land about board and batten, and truly they are all worth reading. Everyone has a different approach. I installed this same wall treatment last month in my friend Mia’s loft, and finally had the opportunity to install board and batten around an entire bedroom in our house.
Pay no attention to the variance in color from scene to scene you’re about to see. These pictures were taken in the brightest morning light and under the dimmest incandescent light over the course of several weeks ~ basically whenever I could get around to working on this project. Want to know how we did it? I’ll tell ya!
Obviously we started with a blank wall like this:
Midway through the madness the room looked like this:
Then we got it closer to this:
And now this:
Ack, what the heck?
This is the section under the window, but (duh) I never captured it at any other angle. You’ll have to wait for the room reveal to see this wall, but I have more ‘final’ pics of the other walls at the end, just scroll down. But first, the play by play.
