BOARD AND BATTEN

Hello Everyone


My latest project is a fake wainscotting. Firstly the  idea was to create it behind my kitchen table to add some country look into it. Then I decided to extend it to adjacent wall. Once I begin, I liked it so much so decided to go with a hall as well. To Avoid measuring and cutting part I used standard size boards from Bunnings.




I started from painting the upper areas of the wall. The colour I chosen is some kind of ocean blue. The idea is to create  cottage beach look . 




After painting I measured up the distance between boards and glued them in to the wall. I used concrete glue.



Next and last step was to paint the lower area with white.

The whole area still needs some final touches. During my holidays back home ( two months ago ), I bought some great decorative things, I am going to use them to style it up. I have sent them by post and  they should arriving here within 4 to 6 weeks. I am also working on the gallery. I am going to write a separate post about this project. Then I will add more before after photos. Unfortunately today is raining and I do not have a good light to take nice quality pictures.
