We are tearing down and building back up a 1890's old farm house. We have been reusing all the extra wood that we tear out. The bead board was left over from the dining room. We used some 2x4's that were left over from another cabinet project upstairs. I went to Sherwin Williams for the paint. They have a miss tint paint section in the back, and I bought the paint for $1. We are very thrifty. We have to be. We only have one more room left. The kitchen.... Ugh!
