New Blue Board & Batten Bath for the Boys

We just finished a make-over of the boys' bathroom. It's been a long time coming. And after seeing all the great board & batten tutorials out there, we were hooked (I was at least....David came on board last night at 3 am when the last piece of hardware was installed).

Absolutely no natural light to speak of so the pictures aren't what I dreamed of...oh well.

The mirror inspired by the House of Smiths!! They rock. Although David hopes they stop doing so many awesome projects so I stop getting so many awesome ideas that become "the next thing on the list"!

It was fine, but nothing to write home about.

And the lighting? Seriously? This home is only six years old...whose "bright" idea was this?

Interesting Aqua...loving it!!

The first board to go up....fingers & toes crossed!!

Thank you, Hilton, for my shower cap from our last hotel stay. It enabled me to not have to painstakingly pick paint out of my hair for the next week. A necessity when painting a ceiling.

Don't laugh. It was 106 here all week. We moved our "woodshop" to the entryway and kept the shop vac ready at all times to deal with the dust. We also learned that our circular saw makes 45 degree cuts...nice to know.

Yay!! The mirror frame fits!

Loving the hooks vs. the towel bar.

Hardware....we live in one of those homes where the builder opted for a hardware-free home...so nice to finally have proper pulls and handles.


Photobucket
Still need to replace the faucet...but that's for another day. We're pooped.

So happy to have this all done. It was quite a bit more difficult than we originally thought it would be. But, it gave us confidence to tackle other things of this nature. Our next biggie is transforming our kitchen island!!
