While the Hubby is away....

The wife will play... With power tools... :O) I told you yesterday that I had a project I was super excited about and we started it last night... Here is the pile of MDF I had cut at Home Depot over the weekend... Can you guess what my project is? Well, I am jumping on the band wagon or rather the Board and Batten wagon... :O)
Last night I had the hubs help put up the baseboards.. I needed the extra hands for that part.. Boy, I wish I was Elasta Girl... That is who I sooo long to be... Would it not just be wonderful? Okay, back to the board and batten..

I had the guys at HD cut the MDF to 6 inches high for the baseboards. I am loving it...
So the hubs went to work this morning and here I was with the power tools.... H.E.A.V.E.N!!! Thought I would get going on the next step.. I had the guys at HD (again) cut the slats 2 inches wide and the top piece 3 inches wide. So on I went putting the slats on the walls...

Looking good so far...

L.O.V.E it!!

So sweet!!

Ignore the mess in the middle of the room... But does that not look good so far?
I just need to put up the 3 inch top piece then comes the daunting task of caulk and painting... I will show you how it turns out later this week, I hope!!!
As always have a great one....
