Of course we’ve done none of that. No time, no money. Same old story.
We may never have the money so I decided to just make do.
Adding board and batten, especially for a teeny tiny size space like this, is so easy.
No fancy miter cuts or anything. Simple straight cuts.
I started by adding a 4″ wide boards all around the edge of the space. And I just used finishing nails to attach the boards.
Next part was adding the 3 middle strips. Same thing just a few finishing nails.
