I’m SO excited to finally be sharing the finished board and batten with you!
When we last left off, we were ready to paint and thought we could knock out painting in one weekend. Let’s laugh at that, ok? 🙂 Thankfully, we had pre-primed boards, but it still took two coats of cutting in and rolling (three coats of rolling in about half the room) to get good coverage. It took 6 hours for each coat because of how much edging there was to do. Jeremy did the first coat on the weekend, then I did the rest during nap times. We tag teamed the pink paint in our typical fashion–I edge, Jeremy rolls, then I touch up. I really love getting to work together on projects with Jeremy! We finished painting last weekend, but there was a lot of clean up and finishing touches left to do.
This weekend, Jeremy reinstalled the quarter round to the baseboards. Because the baseboards are thicker now, he had to make a few minor cuts to get the old quarter round to fit. No big deal, though! Then, I went through and touched up a few spots with paint and Jeremy carried the enitre contents of the garage all the tools he used back to the garage. After the room was emptied, we got down and scrubbed the floors, scraping stray paint off the floor with a food scraper. Then, we declared the whole shebang FINISHED!
Just to refresh your memory…here is the room on Day 1 after we ripped the baseboards off and got it all ready for primer .
And…Here it is now!!!!
Doesn’t the attic door blend in so much better now?
Excuse the mix of real camera photos and phone photos. I don’t have a wide angle lens and this room is very small, so I had a hard time getting photos of it!
Here’s the little nook with all the doors. Four to be exact! Crazy!
And a couple detail shots to finish it off!
