I read a lot of blogs about decorating. (Well, in theory -- my Google Reader account is almost always above 200 at the minimum.)
And, one thing I've noticed about them is that people are CRAZY right now about beadboard:
board and batten:
And, for lack of a better term, wood paneling:
I have to admit, while I think all of these pictures are great, and the finish product turned out looking fabulous: I'm not a big fan.
I don't know if it's my laziness...
Actually, I do know it's my laziness. I like to convince myself that I'm not a fan of this that way I have a good excuse for never trying it in my home!
But, I was going to say, I don't know if it's my laziness, or if it's my fear that beadboard will someday go the way of dark wood paneling and become a home decor joke/annoyance for decades to come. (Though, I do imagine these decorating techniques will be easier to remove when they've worn out their desirability.)
So, all off this to ask: What do you think? Have you done one of these projects in you home? Would you like to? Or, are you lazy and/or fearful like me?
