Board and Batten

  • May 1, 2014


I wanted to remodel my son's room and add a more craftsman/farmhouse/rustic style to his room so the first step was board and batten. I used MDF boards that I had cut down at home depot. I then figured out the spacing on the wall and using a pin nailer, nailed them up. I then caulked all the edged, sanded them down a little bit and painted them white to match the base and trim. I am in love with the board and batten and my son loves it. Everyone who sees it loves it as well. It really adds a fun characteristic to his room.
