You can see the tutorial of how I did this project in my post Board and Batten Back Splash
Voila! It’s finished. (note to self, get a new paper towel holder)
I used my Dutch Boy Refresh Paint (Sweetened White) semi-gloss on this project.
Do you see that Ipod? A gift from jamie! See the Ipod dock? A gift from Uprinting.com. I won a $100.00 gift card for my Thanksgiving post. I got the Ipod dock and some new flatware.
This board and batten may be a temporary fix, but I really do love how it looks. I also used my Dutch Boy paint when I painted the kitchen cabinets.
Do you have board and batten in your home? I’m thinking about doing it in the bathroom, not chair rail height. You know the board and batten that is a little higher with a ledge? That’s what I originally saw in a magazine last week that inspired me to do this backsplash. Any thoughts?
UPDATE: I painted my countertops!
ps don’t stand still too long around here, you may get painted!
