I wanted to put my own easy spin on the board and batten wall for my entry off the garage. I wanted a more rustic look than the typical white so I painted my walls a cream color and stained my wood instead of painting it. I also didn't want to remove the baseboards because they were in good shape and I liked the look. I cut the bottom piece at a 45 degree angle so it would angle over the top of the baseboard. I created a second row and added a shelf to the top that is even with the door frame for my decorations. I have many hooks for backpacks tools or just decorations and love the new look it gave to my entry. This was so easy anyone can do it.
