So for its first transformation, I used faux brick hardy board and painted each brick in different shades of grey paint. It was super cute. BUT. As my style evolved, I was venturing away from my days of all grey everything. Breaking out of my comfort zone and losing that little grey safety net. I fell in love with COLOR! And I fell in love with finding new, modern ways to use it.
Enter the slatted wood trend. Holy smokes am I in love with it. I've done a slatted wood wall in my entry (more on that in another post) and knew I wanted to incorporate it into another area and add a fun pop to it. And my safe grey peninsula fit the bill.
So I pried off the hardyboard and went to work.
