Board and Batten up in the Mud Room--Part 2

Our friend's mudroom project is just about done!  She's spending all weekend caulking and painting.  And believe me, there's lots and lots of caulking and painting to do!  :)
When we started this project a few months ago, it began with her wanting to replace her back door.  It morphed into a complete overhaul of the room and it looks FAB!

 New drop ceiling.

  New insulation. 
 New tongue and groove pine on the ceiling, new light fixture.



This room was an add-on to her 100 year old house.  The old window needed to be replaced.

This is the view out of that window...
Yes, that view should not be covered up! 
New tile, new window in, new moulding, new green paint.

The benches and shelf in process.

Dealing with a 100 year old house adds some extra work.  The original walls are made of sandstone.  To secure the benches, special anchors needed to be installed into the sandstone.




 Adding the board and batten using spacer blocks to make sure everything was even.

Making it work around the light switches.

The new tile floor.

 The new pantry on the other side of the room. 
Here's the new room prior to the final painting and before adding hooks under the shelf.  The best part is that she and her kids love it!
When it's all complete, I'll be sure to share more.
Thanks for your visit.
