Batty for Board and Batten

Sunday, May 17, 2009

A few weeks ago my friend Raissa emailed me and asked how I did the board and batten treatment in my kitchen because she wanted to do something similar in her powder bath.

(Here's my board and batten, so you can get an idea of what I'm talking about)


Honestly, my board and batten treatment is quite primitive. All I did was nail poorly cut lattice strips under an existing chair rail and paint everything white....I'm planning on redoing it at some point. So, instead of telling her to do what I did, I suggested that she copy what Karla at It's the Little Things That Make a House A Home did. Here's the link.

Here's Karla's family room. Isn't it beautiful?!

So...since Raissa doesn't let any moss grow under her feet (is that the saying?...) she jumped on the project right away...and I was BLOWN AWAY when I saw the finished product.

First the BEFORE photo


And AFTER!!!



Isn't it incredible?! Are you as blown away as I am? Of course...how could you not be?!

Again, check out Karla's fab tutorial for specific details on how to do this yourself. If you're like me you'd also be dying to know what the paint colors are that Raissa used. She used Sherwin Williams Artifact on the upper wall (you can't go wrong with this color) and Sherwin Williams Dover White on the wainscoting.

Bravo Raissa!

Gorgeous! I have light wood colored beadboard, chair rail and undersink cabinet in my main bath at the new house and I'm planning on painting it all white. Like this but the wood is already up. :) I can't wait. We close next Friday!

This is fantastic! Thank you for sharing. It is very similar to the effect I want in my guest bath...which I have been putting off starting for nearly 15 months. Now, I'm inspired!

I'd love to know about those gauzy curtains. Can you point me to hers, or do you know where she got them/how she made them?
