I love it and had planned on doing this for our new handicapped bathroom. I love your instructions, but when I went to Home Depot, I was informed that they would not make cuts under 12 inches. Does the cutting occur at only some Home Depot locations.
And I did not mean to take away from your project or instructions as the project is better than the one I planned and explained so well. Thank you and just in time.

Thanks so much everyone for all your sweet comments! @socrates - Some Depot's say 12", but all 3 I go to will make the cuts this small. You can also use a circular saw with a guide or a table saw, but having them cut it was my best option! :-)

I used to work at Home Depot and we were not allowed to do rip cuts (under 12 inches.) I would be very surprised if you were able to get someone to do these cuts for you there. That being said this looks great and luckily I have a table saw to do these cuts myself!

Surely you mean feet (') and not inches (") when talking board cuts here, no? Very confusing.

Thank you! My only question...Is there a good formula to use when measuring how many battwns you should have on each wall?

I just bought my home a little over a year ago and one of the first things I said was that I wanted a wall like this in my dining room. I have been looking for just the right tutorial for this and yours fits the bill!! Can't wait to get started on it! Very nice job!

Were your walls textured to begin with? I have plans to do board and batten in a couple of rooms, but my walls are textured and I think it will look funny if I don't either sand the texture off or cover it with 1/8 inch mdf.

What paint color did you use? It's beautiful!
