Board and Batten for a {Big Boy}

Pin It
My little man is growing up! Sniff.


Aren't his blue eyes Ah-mazing?!

Anyway, I digress.  It's time for a new room.  This little guy has outgrown this:

Board and Batten it is!  

I've been wanting to do this somewhere in my house for forevvvvver!

I am INSANELY happy with how it has turned out!



It wraps allllll the way around the room:

  22. It looks fabulous! I never would have chosen such a dark green and it actually turns out beautiful. Reason why I love blogs: it shows you things you never would have thought all by yourself! Thanks for sharing, I'm visiting from Transformation Thursday!
