I’ve jumped on the board and batten train! My husband went out of town for about 36 hrs…so I thought I could put up board and batten, paint and get the Master bedroom I’ve dreamed of…all within the 36 hr time limit. Why is it when husbands leave to go out of town, every creative juice starts flowing? I think I can re-do the entire house while he’s gone. I also think I’m on vacation and I don’t have to cook and we can eat out for every meal. He’s home now…so I will cook tonight.
Lowes Home Improvement would not cut my MDF…something about no kick plate and not being able to cut anything less than 6 inches. So I went to Home Depot and, good natured, Mr. Patient, Josh…cut my MDF for me. I did end up getting charged $.25 a cut. That was a bummer. And a quick project has turned into me hammering my thumb nail 47 times. I’ll tell you all about how I did it when I show you the finished project. It’s 5ft high with 2in vertical strips. I’m painting the top gray.
Speaking of gray…let’s have a little impromptu contest. Can you guess how many paint swatches of gray I have painted on this wall?? I’ll choose the winner of the correct answers, via random # generator. The winner can choose between “The Lazy Girl Slipcover eBook” or “The Lazy Girl Quilt tutorial.”
