One of the items on my to-do list in the laundry room was to add a board and batten wall treatment to one of the walls. You see, sometime before I came to rescue this little cottage, a door knob hole was popped into the wall. Since it is an older home, the wall texture is nearly non-existent, and to try and repair the hole so you couldn't tell it had been damaged would be nearly impossible.
I figured with a board and batten treatment, one of the boards could be strategically placed going up and down right over the hole.
A great idea I thought. It requires a trip to Home Depot for the wood, and borrowing my daughter's chop saw and then painting the newly attached wood white.
Then, I spotted my small pile of three assorted old washboards.
And I realized I could do the board and batten look later on down the road. For now, I could hang my collection of washboards on that wall, and make sure one of them covered the door knob hole. My daughter had two more washboards she was going to sell in her yard sale this weekend, and that rounded my collection up to five.
That ended up working out just fine, for the tie being.
And, it was easy and quick to assemble.
(And, best of all, it was free.)
What do you think?
