So in our previous post, we mentioned that we were going to install a fun wall treatment to our dining room walls called, Board and Batten.
It was as super simple project (it took only a weekend to finish). However, I must warn you, if you don't like to paint this project IS NOT for you! It took 3 coats of paint and if you are a messy painter like me, you'll have just as many coats on your hands, legs, face, etc. :).
So without further ado, here are the befores...
And finally, the afters...
1. Used MDF for the 6in board on top and the 2in boards that run perpendicular (the bottom molding was already there). Then we added a 2 in "shelf" on top out of the same MDF.
2. Painted with Behr's Ultra Pure White Primer and Paint. Again, even with the primer, you will need 3 coats. For some reason, white is much harder paint to cover other colors.
3. We replaced the chandelier with one I found a yard sale for $20 and added the shades that I found at Tuesday Morning for $4.00.
4. I painted the china cabinet the same color as our kitchen cabinets, Behr's Cotton Knit.
I think that's about it. I'm debating what to do with the dining table. Should I paint it? Just the chairs? Get upholstered chairs? Ahh, the decisions.
I hope you like our transformation. I think it turned out pretty good and adds a whole other dimension to our home.
Have a great Wednesdady everyone! I hope you enjoyed your day(s) off like we did :)!
