I "repinned" this DIY project on pinterest about a month ago, glancing at it every time I had the opportunity. It'd been a hot minute since we'd done any improving to our house, so this morning we meticulously took note of some measurements and made moves to the nearest Home Depot.
Here's the before & after of our "Board and Batten" foyer! Despite the fact that just about every piece of wood was warped, the tags on the wood were mismarked (throwing all of our tedious measurements off by half a flippin' inch) and the minor matter of this being our first time ever doing something like this, I'd say we successfully killed it! There's some slight caulking/painting that still needs to be done, but we're in love and can't stop walking by to peek at our new accomplishment.
