I love the look of a board and batten wall. When I turned 40 my hubby asked what I wanted for my birthday. “For you to teach me how to make a board and batten wall!” Super random I know, but it made me feel like a grown up to use a nail gun – so that’s exactly what we did. This was my first big project with an air compressor and a nail gun – both intimidated me. But it was so much fun! Here it is:
With his help it turned out awesome and I couldn’t believe how easy it was. It added so much depth to this tiny hall and brightened the room. I loved it!
Now, 1 1/2 years later I am finally writing a tutorial on how you can do it too. First off, watch my 60 second DIY Tutorial on it, and then follow along – I know you will love it!
Who loves barn doors but doesn’t want to hire someone to build it for you? You are in the right place, because that is how I felt. So I set out to find an easy build that I could do on my own – and here is how I did it. Best part is it cost me under $75 for this 6 foot by 3 foot door!
Follow along with my 60 second tutorial and then check out all the details below!
We are so close to the finish line and it has been so much fun! Make sure you follow along herewith all of the designers this time around to get all the inspiration you need to do this yourself. I am already thinking about what room I want to refinish for the Fall ORC (think stenciled flour in the laundry room people!).
One of my last steps was to add blinds to my newly renovated windows. Of course I can’t make my own blinds, but I want to show you how easy it is to install them ALL BY YOURSELF! This was my week four challenge to accomplish. Here is my update so far:
We hung monkey bars from my daughters ceiling, not even thinking that the wall could be a casualty of this creative idea. Needless to say, after a year or so – it happened. Someone’s foot went through the wall:
I knew it needed to be fixed, but I also wanted it to be stronger than before so it wouldn’t happen again. I have always wanted a faux brick wall and figured this was a good chance to try it out. Follow along with our 60 second DIY Tutorial to watch the transformation, then check out all the details below!
EEK! I am geeking out at my newest project – like hardcore. I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT! Did I mention that I love it? Ok. Want to see my before and after?
Amazing right? So here we go….
I discovered Weaber Lumber (pronounced Webber) on Instagram after seeing some amazing walls finished with it and I had to try it out. I am renovating my guest room and it was the perfect wall to do it on. So check out my 60 second video tutorial and then follow along and see how easy it is for anyone to do this DIY!
I have always wanted to try out milk paint and figured my Granny’s old oak headboard was where to start. I started my search online and I found Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint – it is the cutest website! There are so many tutorials to learn from and I instantly felt like Marian and I (aka Miss Mustard Seed) were instant friends (even though she has never met me, but I just know we would be buddies!).
So check out my 60 second DIY Tutorial on my project and then follow along for details on how my headboard turned out. And go check out this amazing line of milk paints!!!
