It has taken awhile, but we got some work done on the board and batten in our family room this weekend.
We have basically finished the kitchen side of this wall,
but I had trouble deciding what to do on this side (and we needed some special cuts for the two differently sized sides of the fireplace insert.) I'm happy with the progress but as luck would have it the hardware store ripped one of the boards wrong and we couldn't finish. I will be busy painting this week for a friend, but as soon as that is done I am getting a board ripped and continuing on. I'm also trying to decide whether or not to paint the old sideboard we use as a TV stand. I could leave it as is, strip it or paint it (probably black.) It is a really solid old piece with wide plank backing and square forged nails. I would love to hear your opinion.
I'm sharing this with...
