BOARD & BATTEN HALLWAY ~ the final reveal and big plans

I can finally show y’all the board & batten hallway all finished. Oh wait! Not “ALL” finished. Just the board & batten. Click the link to read how we hung it.

Here you go….

You can see my large mirror on the cheap. Click on the link to read how I made it. Underneath the mirror will go the antique table that I found at a sweet little shop near us. Can’t wait to show you the gold distress I’m adding to it.


You may notice all the doors are black except for these two. These doors lead to the bonus room. I bought french doors at the ReStore that I will paint black, add crystal door knobs and do  a treatment on the windows. Still haven’t figured that one out yet. We have a date with our friendly electrician to install sconces that we bought at Lowe’s Home Improvement for each side of the doors.


Aren’t they pretty??!!

I bought quite a few wall hangings for all the empty walls you see. Can’t wait to share those with you soon.

Now, just imagine the carpet gone and dark wood floors in its place. We’re still trying to decide if we should get pre-stained hardwoods or unstained and do it ourselves.

Here’s a before & after (my favorite!!)

We followed the exact same steps as we did in our laundry room board & batten wall. Click the link to read all about it.

Hope you’re enjoying your week.

Love y’all,

    Hi Linda! Love reading all your great ideas, I have had both pre stained and unstained hardwood floors. I highly recommend the pre stained. The finish is so much more durable on the pre stained. Our pre stained floors are now 16 years old and people still ask if we have had them refinished.

    • Thanks Stephanie! I was talking about you and Logan to Josh. One of my favorite co-room moms EVER!! Thanks for the flooring tip. Still doing research. The cost is what is probably going to be the deciding factor!! Miss you! ~Linda

  2. Wow, very impressive! Love the look and you should be so happy. Looking forward to seeing more. Thanks so much for sharing this lovely look at DI&DI. Have a great week.

  3. It’s truly amazing! Thank you for sharing. You are one of the features at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Here is the link for this week’s bash. Hope to see you again at the party. Happy week! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  4. What an awesome treatment in the hallway. Gorgeous job. Where did you get the glass top door that says laundry? I want ta door like that for my officce.

    • Thanks Carol! I bought the laundry room door from the ReStore. I frosted the window and placed a vinyl “Laundry”sign. I get so many compliments about that door. Thanks again! ~Linda

  5. Linda, this is gorgeous! I love wall treatments like this that add so much impact. Great job!
