Here are my bathroom BEFORE pictures:
These are the original 1981 cabinets and it just didn't go with the black mirror or the counter top...
I think my friend summed it up...it's just Country looking...
And here's my AFTER Board and Batten Bathroom:
I just love how it turned out!
I painted the cabinets a glossy black and which brings out the mirror, light fixture and other black accents.
Instead of working around the baseboard, I took it up and used a 1x4 instead and put down new shoe molding.
The sides of the sink were too narrow to add any boards so instead I just ran the top boards across the top.
Here's the other side of the mirror.
Up close of the board and batten. I used a semi-gloss white paint. Painters caulk is my new best friend!
I painted the walls first (yes, that's just dry wall) and then painted my boards and then attached everything together and gave it all one final coat.
