All I want for Christmas is:
Board and Batten in my dining room.
I reminded Jonathan that my Christmas gift will not fit in my stocking this year.
Casey asked what I wanted and he thought it would be the perfect project to tackle while he was here.
While Jonathan worked in the morning, Casey got started.
I helped him lay out how I wanted it to look.
We used masking tape to lay it all out.
Then he went to Lowe’s and bought all the lumber.
Soon after he got started, Jonathan arrived and they got to work putting it all up.
They are a great team. This is one of many projects they have done together.
Once it was up, we all pitched in and got it painted. I woke up with my room looking like this:
…and went to bed with my room looking like this:
Well not exactly like this.
We did have to wait for the paint to dry, but it gave Krysta and I the perfect excuse to do some redecorating.
I love that we were able to redecorate with everything I already had.
I love this room.
I really wanted the shelf in here. It is my favorite part. it was Krysta’s idea to put plates on it.
It feels so Pottery Barn to me. I also love all the small simple touches of Christmas in here.
This is the room I spend most of my time in.
This is where I park my laptop, do homework with my kids, and feed them meals.
I am glad I had already decided to put my tree in this room. I love it here now even more.
I love sitting in here with the nice crisp white walls. It makes the room so much brighter.
Just in time for Christmas morning pictures.
Thank you Jonathan and Casey for making my Christmas dreams come true.
