Just a quick post to follow up on my idea of adding shiplap or board and batten to my entryway.
If you'd like to read my post on shiplap and board and batten click here.
We decided on the board and batten, because:
1. Board and batten is throughout the rest of the house so I think it gives the space a cohesive look.
2. I was concerned because of its popularity it would look outdated SOON!
So here's the before:
And although it looked nice, it just needed something!
It took my husband really an afternoon and a lot of sweet tea (not even a full day) to complete this project.
I snapped a few progress pics too!
This is with one coat of Benjamin Moores White Dove. In total it took 3 coats.
He had to lower it a bit from the dining room because of the dang light switch!
And tah-dah here's the after! We couldn't be happier with it!
I haven't totally decided on how I want to style it yet. I just moved around what I had for now.
I feel that the wall looks grounded now and not just floating. And anytime you add architectural interest to a room, its a win win!
As far a decorating goes…
I've been looking at some entryway benches like these, which could actually double as extra dining room seating!
I love when I have a new area to decorate!
Oh and I almost forgot...
I still love shiplap and don't be surprised if I cave and it shows up somewhere!
Have a great day!
