    tools for project

    My board and batten accent wall is 48" tall. 

    I used two 1x4x8' for the horizontal top boards. Use a level, glue and nail gun to attach them to the wall.

    For the vertical boards, I cut the 8' wood trims in half with a circular saw. I kept a 14" spacing between boards.

    Last step was caulk and paint. We built this board and batten for a total of $183. The paint color is Conifer Green by Behr.

    Did you use the gorilla glue or wood glue? I see both in the picture.
