The Easy DIY Board and Batten Project Guide
A board and batten feature on your walls can add detail, draw light into your home and fill a room with texture. When completed the board and batten technique offers a distinguished kind of flair that any interior design enthusiast or proud homeowner will love.
If you’ve always wanted to bring the board and batten aesthetic into your home but you’ve been reluctant to hire someone to do it for you, don’t worry. We’re going to show you how to do it yourself with this month’s exciting DIY project.
The Every Kitchen Menu Board
The humble chalkboard – For decades it has been seen as a mundane educational tool, scrawled with messy algebra equations, sums and homework assignments and towering in the front of bored faces in classrooms across the world. But the days of the chalkboard being bound in endless maths periods is over. Today the chalkboard is making a comeback as a trendy decorative feature, gracing the walls and propped up outside the doors of hipster cafes across the globe.
The Repurposed Tyre Rope Ottoman
With the growing call and awareness from recycling and sustainability, repurposed tyres are surfacing in the design market in a number of ways. One of the most popular uses for these worn out rubber rejects is furniture. From comfy armchairs to progressive coffee tables, old tyres have not only worked their way into a booming design market, they’re become sought after!
And that’s great news considering that millions of used tyres simply pile up in used rubber yards around the world each year. What’s even better is the price. Seeing as tyres are literally being thrown away, you can get your hands on them without breaking the bank.
The Upholstered DIY Headboard
No bedroom is truly complete without a classy headboard. Symbolising the perfect balance between style and functionality, headboards have been a cosy bedroom addition which offers added design flair since as far back as ancient Egypt and Greece.
Today, however, the headboard is just another addition that eats into your budget when buying a new bed suite. The great news is that you can make your own quality, comfortable headboard using a sheet of hardboard, and in the April edition of The DIY Project of the Month we’re going to show you how!
The “Everyone’s an Artist” Hardboard Stencil Wall Art
Buying art is expensive, so why not make your own and brighten up your home for a fraction of the price. With this month’s DIY Project of the Month you don’t have to have an artistic bone in your body to create your own stunning art – you just have to be handy with an electric jigsaw.
So, if you’re ready to dive into another DIY project made easy then make your way to your local hardware store and Evowood distributor to pick up everything you’ll need.
