I love batten and board! I looked up tutorials on how to do it and I found about 2,747,832 different ones. Seriously, there are a lot! I have this funky space in our hall that was just begging for something. I didn't want another thing to clean, but we really needed some kind of coat rack. After pa-rousing the web, I definitely landed on batten board. I really enjoyed this project. It was a lot of bang for little buck. It did take about 4 weeks for me to finish this, especially since I decided to paint the whole hall! There are definitely great tutorials on the web so I'll just show you my transformation.
Also, my grandma wanted to see some recent pictures of the kids. Here they are grams!
