December 5, 2014

Greetings from Minnesota!  I decided to fly up for a vacation in the tropics.  HA.  Actually, it's warmer than I thought it would be - a balmy 18 degrees!

Rain, shine, sleet, or snow, fleaChic will make its appointed rounds.
And today we're getting 'round to Before & After molding projects.  

I'm always amazed at the difference board and
batten molding can make in a room:

There are no 'before' photos of these next two rooms but
you can see how much architectural interest the b&b adds:


The entry to this house was quite plain:

But not any more:

Click here for the step-by-step tutorial
on how this project was done:
Such an interesting difference.

This project was completed for less than $60:

It can be challenging to add interest to a small bathroom:
(Sort of) Before


This fireplace was nice but the added board
and batten gives it a taller presence:

Just changing one wall can have a
huge impact on the entire room:

Hardly looks like the same foyer:

A rather boring foyer and hallway were given
a touch of pizazz with molding and paint.

This lovely room hardly need improvement:
Who knew it could get better?!

If there's an area of your home that needs a little something special, consider adding board and batten.  Not only is it interesting and inexpensive, it can usually be installed in a weekend.

Speaking of weekends, have a great one!

    1. It's amazing how a simple can of paint can completely change a room. And check out the many videos online when you get ready to install molding. The process has gotten a LOT simpler. Have a great weekend.
