Master Bedroom Wall

We've had an empty wall in our master bedroom for 7 1/2 years.

Since we built the house.

Shocking, I know.

What can I say? The wall isn't wide enough for the king-size bed, so it's always been more of a walkway to one side of the bed slash room.

I really like the look of board and batten that I've seen on many blogs, but I knew the hubs would say no. So I got creative.

I found an old barn board in our shed.

Thanks to my wonderful FIL, I have an electric drill. I finally got to use it!

Once I hung up the board, I also screwed in some smaller boards on the top to make a narrow ledge. I placed some pictures and frames on it, but I still need to play with that arrangement.

Then I used my Silhouette (insert choirs of Angels singing) and printed out a quote and put it on the wall with a 3D effect.

Guess what? The hubs loves it!
