How to Build a Basic Board and Batten Wall

Before we explore the details of our property, let’s take a moment to discover how you can create your own basic board and batten wall. This simple yet impactful design element has the power to transform any room in your home into a space that exudes character and style.

Measure and Determine Spacing

To begin, measure the wall where you plan to install the board and batten wall. Determine the spacing you desire for the vertical battens, which will create the distinctive look of this design.

Cut and Install the Boards

Next, cut the boards for the top and bottom rails, as well as the vertical battens. These boards will form the foundation of your board and batten wall. Install the top and bottom rails horizontally on the wall, ensuring they are level and securely attached.

Attach the vertical battens evenly spaced along the wall, aligning them with your predetermined measurements. It’s important to make sure they are level and securely fastened to create a visually pleasing effect.

Fill, Sand, Prime, and Paint

Once the boards are in place, fill any gaps or seams with wood filler and carefully sand the surface smooth. This step is crucial to achieving a polished and seamless look. Afterward, apply a coat of primer to prepare the surface for painting.

Now, it’s time to add a pop of color to your board and batten wall. Choose a paint color that reflects your style and complements your overall interior design. In our case, we opted for a captivating dark green that instantly catches the eye and adds depth to the space.
