Before & After: Jae's New Board & Batten Bedroom

Before & After: Jae's New Board & Batten Bedroom

Jae sent us an email about an amazing DIY renovation of her bedroom. Using MDF, paint and just a smidge over $100, she now has a whole new look with tons of architectural detail. Check it out:

Jae writes: Writeup: I wanted to lighten up our bedroom but still keep it calming and relaxing. Most of the transformation was done with paint but we did add a board & batten accent wall for a large impact.

This was a relatively inexpensive update. I walked out of Lowe's with a receipt for $102. That included 2 gallons of paint, the MDF ($24 for the board), the two trim pieces, and a few miscellaneous items (painters blue tape, a small jar of oops paint, etc). Next up (besides more painting) - art & mirrors.
