Where in the world did the weekend go? It was a blip and a flash, but I accomplished one HUGE thing. I finished updating the master bedroom with board and batten. Remember what it looked like before?
Now "Hello Beautiful!"
I used MDF this time and I was very pleased with how it turned out. I purchased all the pieces at Lowe's and was surprised at how cheap it was compared to using poplar.
I painted the entire wall white in White Dove. This is a BM color that I used on all our trim, but I had a gallon of it mixed with Behr paint. Eggshell finish with paint and primer. All the trim came primed so it just needed a fine sanding, caulking and nail hole filling.
I ended up spacing the board 10 inches apart as I wanted a different look from the rest of the rooms in my house. I felt that it gave a more cottage type vibe to the space. I also trimmed out the windows with 1x2 and 1x3 like I did in the office.
The update completely changed the look of the room and I couldn't be happier with how the furniture looks against the wall now. My dresser pull update looks even better.
I'm still deciding if I want to put up bamboo blinds or keep the white wood ones that were there.
How'd your weekend turn out? Move too fast for you too?
