One thing you should know about me:
I'm a sucker for charming character.
When we bought our home earlier this year, I was well aware that the style of this home wasn't exactly what I wanted. I love unique features, lots of character, truckloads of charm.
Basically, I want a cottage. A cozy, old cottage.
But I live in Tennessee... and we seem to have a shortage of such things!
I knew immediately that I wanted to transform our cookie cutter home into our dream home. Anyone can add charm, it's all in the details!
This board & batten wall was a step in that direction.
Yeah, I had to keep it real on the before picture!
We'll call that the 'junk corner.'
In this picture you can really see how the wall color, couch color, and carpet color are all running together.
The flooring will eventually be changed out to hardwood, but something had to be done about that wall.
Let's get ready to rumble! My mister, starting the task of measuring and marking :)
Seriously, such a big difference.
Eeeeek! I'm over the moon for this wall, and it's not done yet!
Next, we are going to add a shelf that runs along the top of the board & batten wall. And I will fill it with pictures and such ;)
This project took us around 3 days to complete.
Total cost was right around $120.
Not too shabby :)
