Zach and I moved into our house a little over 3 years ago and have always wanted to do an accent wall somewhere in our house to add some more character! A few weeks ago, his brother and him took on the project and we are SO happy with how it turned out! My room feels like a trendy hotel, and I’m obsessed! Below, is a blog post written by Zach detailing out how YOU can do this too!
HOW TO: DIY Accent Wall – Board and Batten
Before you even touch the saw, nails, paint, etc. we highly suggest you do these things first.
TIME TO GET STARTED
*Keep in mind you’ll also need to account for the width of the boards in your final measurements – our boards were 2.5” wide, so we subtracted 5” off our final measurement s for the horizontal frame to fit with the vertical frame.
*You can also use this as an opportunity to cover up any damages on the wall if they exist, as it will all be painted in the final step.
*In hindsight, we would even recommend going through steps d-f more than once if necessary. It will have a significant impact on how your finished product looks.
