DIY Board & Batten Entry Wall.

Tuesday, June 23, 2015
I'm finally getting around to sharing some projects that we have finished recently in our home.
Today I am sharing one of my very favorites... and perhaps the easiest with the greatest amount of impact.

We recently added a board & batten wall treatment on the entry way wall of our little abode. I have to admit that I put off this project over and over because I was afraid of the cost + time commitment of it all, but it really cost us under $50 and took one afternoon.
Not kidding.
I had a hard time finding a suitable tutorial to do it the way I envisioned it working + turning out, so I plan to share the way we went about this wall so inexpensively and how we problem solved our way into making this such a breeze project. 
For now, here are a bunch of pretty pictures... because that's what we're here for! I think the decor on this wall has been ever changing since it was completed, but here is how it currently looks.

The bench is from Downeast Home.
Mirror & rosette pillow is Threshold for Target. 
Gingham Pillow Ikea.
Stool is vintage.
Baskets & pot are Homegoods.

Cheery lemon wreath is Threshold for Target.
Bag is Target.
Monogram is from Etsy.
Hooks are from Home Depot.

I relocated our family gallery wall to the photo ledge we added. I love the homey touch of having them all lined up as guests enter our home. I've collected the frames from Target & Ikea over the years. 

Also, that snake plant is a sur-viv-or. It has been amazing me with its will to live spite my negligence.  Plus, it's cool to look at so win win. 
This wall is not only beautiful but it adds a LOT of function not to mention impact to our little home. The bang for your buck is definitely worth it! Stay tuned for the details.

Love your entry way. Ours is pretty small, and I was thinking of doing the board and batten look. Any suggestions/tips?
