The Board and Batten is up and now the bathroom just needs its final coat of paint. I used 1 x 6” for the baseboard and 1 x 4” for the top piece and 1 x 3” for the vertical boards. I topped everything with a 1 x 2” ledge. It looks so good. I love that the horizontal pieces are the same width as the vertical pieces.
I used absolutely no liquid nails on this board and batten. We just nailed everything into the studs. I only placed the vertical pieces where the studs are. We used spackle to fill the cracks and put a thin bead of paintable caulk along all the edges.
We beveled the board and batten on the edges that end near the mirror.
This is what our floor looked like after all the sanding.
We framed the mirror. Here’s a side by side of the mirror.
It still needs to be sanded, caulked and painted. It’s really hard to photograph the mirror and the light is crazy bright.
Here’s how we framed the mirror.
I used a 1 x 4 the width of the mirror for the top and bottom. On top of the bottom 1 x 4 we placed a 1 x 2 on top of that to form a small ledge. Use 2 1 x 3’s to run the length of the mirror and place the other 1x4 on top of them.
Here’s the new light.
It should be finished this week. Wahoo!!
