Like I said before, I had been avoiding this project like I do the scale after the holidays. It's just been hanging over my head, looming (again, like the scale after the holidays). Nevermind that my husband has been
bugging asking me when I was going to finish it. After all, he busted out the board cutting/nailing over the holidays (yes, it's been that long).
Now that it's done, I wonder why I let it loom for so long. It looks fabulous, and, like all of the other board and batten I have in my house, I. love. it. Lord help us if board and batten isn't as timeless as I think it is. I will be in deep
sh.. trouble if that happens. But for now, take a look! (Brace yourself for photo overload)...
Let's look at where we began. Digging back to one of my "before" photos before we moved in.
Below is the view as you're coming downstairs (the greenery on the banister is garland - just another reminder of how long this project has been sitting around unfinished)...
