Our DIY Board and Batten Grid Wall

Instead of working on a blog post last weekend, I decided to tackle a home project that we've been meaning to do for weeks. Ever since moving into this house, I've hated the 19 foot long boring wall across from our kitchen. Because our house is tall and narrow, our main floor layout is a [...]
