My wife and I decided to spruce up the entry way into our home. She deserves the bulk of the credit for the project and did much of the work. I helped when needed. We chose the board and batten style update for our entry way. Simply put, the update consists of adding vertical slats, a horizontal board, and a top rail to give it some depth and character. This was a weekend project.
The tools required for this project are common and inexpensive. No power tools required.
It wouldn't be a real DIY project if there wasn't a screw up and a fix. In this case we had two.
Everything was done in a weekend from Friday afternoon to Sunday. Here are the time estimates:
The final product looks nice, and I think it will add value and enjoyment to our house.
