        Looks great. How did you get all that stuff for $187?

          Steve thanks so much for leaving a comment! I just joined HomeTalk tonight and this is my first post. I've put a detailed list of all my costs on my blog here. http://www.2littlesuperheroes.com/2012/07/187-boys-bathroom-makeover.html But it's really just paint and some wood for the molding. But I just used the absolute cheapest wood (2" wide battens at Home Depot $0.66 a foot- and I really didn't have that much wall space to cover). Being such cheap wood I just had to make sure it wasn't too warped when buying it. The battens are thin it's not the nice thick board and batten, but I was on a strict budget and it's just a kids bathroom (they didn't even notice that I changed anything in the room, lol).
