I also wanted to share the bathroom progress with you! We recently removed the old tile and installed board and batten on the bathroom wall. I love how it looks already, and it was such an inexpensive upgrade!
Tile is down! We found weird holes in the wall behind the tile in different places. It was kind of crazy. Hole from an old toilet paper holder? Tile over it! Old laundry shoot? Leave the shoot in place and go over it! The amazing thing for all of my complaining about thing breaking in our house, we’ve found out it’s really well built. The walls are wire mesh with concrete over the top! Great for construction, and non-molding, bad for trying to break into a wall. 🙂 We opted to space our board and batten about 13 inches on center, and 5 feet off the ground to cover where the existing tile was.
We knew board and batten on the bathroom wall would really upgrade the space for under $40
Drywall is up and primed. What a difference already! We’ve added board and batten and trim to quite a few places in our home including our bedroom and crown molding in our living room. I just love how trim makes such a huge difference. IN our guest bathroom downstairs, we added a wood ceiling and love how organic it feels.
Adding the board and batten was a bit of a challenge with the concrete over wire lath, and it was hard to demo the wall which is why we opted instead to go right over the old wall with the wood slats.
We’ll be painting the board and batten in the bathroom BM White Dove. the wall above it and the tiled shower area will be and Martha Stewart’s Dolphin Grey for the top. I hope to get it painted soon to show you the finished product! In my head these projects always go faster than they do in real life
