Do you ever just wake up with an idea that you have to run with right away? Unfortunately for my hubby, it happens around here all the time.
One weekend, I knew I wanted to jump into a new DIY project, but I wanted to keep it simple. I was thinking about wallpapering or pencil shiplap.
But then, I had another idea. Board and batten. I wanted to start in our main bathroom, but I had also been itching to try out board and batten down our back hallway.
And it just wouldn’t have made sense to do one without the other, right?
Now that we’re all in agreement…
So when my husband woke up and I hit him with the idea, I was expecting a little push back.
Instead, I got an, “Okay, let's do it.”
And I ran with it!
I did some quick research on other board and batten DIYs to get a sense of what I was getting myself into. There were so many takes on it.
Remove the baseboards, don’t remove them. Add more detail, add less detail. Space the batten this many inches apart.
The list goes on and on.
What I realized was that I needed to pick and choose what I wanted and run with it!
