And there’s nothing hung on the walls, but I can’t wait one more minute to show you the board and batten treatment that we finally finished in our family room this weekend! If you would like a tutorial on how we did this project, click here. For a breakdown of the cost and time involved, click here.
I love it so much that I’m giddy every time I walk into the room. I can’t take credit for the idea though. That came from my brilliant friend Layla from The Lettered Cottage. She did a stunning redesign on my family room a couple of months back and we’ve been slowly implementing her ideas.
Do you remember what it looked like before?
We had an ocean of drywall that just couldn’t hold it’s own against the stone fireplace.
Now we have a room full of charm and character.
The board and batten was a stroke of genius. It has completely transformed the feeling of this room.
I especially love where it wraps around the windows.
We went with a simple rustic design that goes all the way to the ceiling and it works perfectly in this room. The paint color we used is Fence Post by Behr because I had a bunch of it left over from painting my kitchen stools.
Tune in tomorrow and I’ll give you more details about how we actually did this project. In the meantime, here is some more board and batten inspiration from blogland:
