For some reason, the DIY projects I always want to do the most are the ones we put off the longest. Probably because the projects I am most interested in are the frivolous ones.
Right now our hallway is BORING. It’s long and narrow and lacks any traces of personality at the moment. While we (briefly) toyed with opening it up, it’s just not worth the trouble. Instead we widened the door to the living room by a foot (as evidenced by the lack of trim boards).
The hallway is too skinny for any type of console table. I’ve been imagining some nice architectural details in this space to make it a bit more interesting. There is no shortage of board and batten tutorials or inspiration photos online. The real question is… what type of board and batten? There are many ways to do it – different heights, widths, spacing.

I’d like to continue going up our stairs like this too!
After researching inspiration photos online, I think we’ve decided to go with the chunky, double-decker look.
Here’s a Photoshopped version of what I hope it will look like:
Then we will just need to get some color in there!!
That reminds me… that letter “C” on the wall is a DIY project I’ve been meaning to share.
Have any board and batten advice for me? I’m so excited!
