Updated Board and Batten

Hello and welcome to Friday.  Can I get a whoop whoop?

A few weekends ago I decided it was time to upgrade the board and batten in the back entry.  I wanted it to be a little taller and more hooks.  I felt like only the kids had room for their jackets and backpacks.  Their stuff was hogging it all.

Well now everyone's got some space.  We do have a coat closet to the left but it's easy to just walk in and hang up your purse or jacket without immediately going to the closet.

I had some leftover pieces from the bottom poplar boards in the garage so I just extended it up.  I like the two rows of hooks instead of just the one.

I had to buy a 1x4 for the top horizontal board and a 1x2 for the ledge.  I like the little ledge at the top so I can lean stuff on it.  For now it's got my paint stick project and a blue monogram.  It also gives it a finished look.

Check out those hooks.  I originally was going to go with the larger hooks that matched the lower ones from Ikea.  So glad I changed my mind.  These have some curve and stand out better.

And from the other side.

Here's the before.

And now.  Better?

I love it.  I don't know why I didn't do this the first time.  You live and you learn right?

Have a great weekend friends.  Make it a good one.
