Yes, I know you are probably wondering just how many more posts this week I can get out of our dining room but let me assure you this will be the last one till we actually get something completed in here.
|That brought me to Thrifty Decor Chic and her sons big boy room reno. She used lattice strips from Home Depot to create this board and batten treatment. I have had this in my file for over a year and I honestly have been trying to hunt down said lattice strips with no such luck. Seriously I do not know why Home Depot does not carry the same lumber supplies in every store! It is very frustrating because I then found Courtney over at And Then There Was Home. She was in the process of creating a board and batten treatment in her office and found some bender board at Home Depot that she used to turn her office into master piece! After seeing it I quickly threw the boys in the car and rushed over to our Home Depot thinking I had finally found something that would work because Courtney lives just south of us and surely if her Home Depot carried said bender board ours would too. NOPE!!!|
I ended up at Lowes just to see what if anything I could come up with cause I know it is now or never on creating a wall treatment for in here. I did not find any wood lattice strips but what I did find was an 8 ft long piece of PVC lattice that was white and paintable. At $5 a strip though it is more than what I am wanting to spend but it works and so I brought it home and created the single strip design like Thrifty Decor Chic and well The Hubster said he did not like it. He thinks it looks like an after thought in the dinning room though he likes it in the room Thrifty Decor did! Urgh! I do not want the molding to look like an after thought I want it to look like a french country farm house and though I know in my hearts of hearts it would look lovely I set out on a mission tonight to come up with a differ design that we could both hopefully be happy with that will still cost lil' to accomplish and cost The Hubster the least amount of his time.
|And yet as if I needed another idea I found tonight Amy's molding project over at A Little Piece of Heaven. Her dining room turned out just lovely but she used the elusive wooden lattice strips from Home Depot as well!! Urghhhhh you Home Depot!! You should really head over to Amy's cause not only did she do this beautiful wall treatment she also has done several others in her foyer and in a bathroom that are gorgeous!|
Off to obsess some more abt this and to stick the strips back on the wall so The Hubster can see them in the morning on his way out the door to work. I just heard them popping off the wall! I guess Duck tape doesn't stay stuck to everything.
Oh, and if you are heading back here for Weigh IN Wednesday I will have that post up later in the after noon Wednesday. I am still working on it.
