DIY "Moody" Board & Batten Accent Wall in Game Room at Modern Farmhouse Glam

Posted by Amy Long, Owner, Modern Farmhouse Glam on Sep 3rd 2021

Here is the Moody DIY Board in Batten Wall that I created in our Game Room.  I'm loving the new dark charcoal grey color and the dimension that the wood trim created! I'll provide as much info as I can so that you can create this wall in your home!  This project is level EASY! Great beginner's DIY project.  I think the trickiest part is the measurements. You may need a few trips back to Lowes or Home Depot lol! Don't all home projects require at least several unexpected trips back? Let me know if you have any questions in the comments on my Instagram post.

Here's the measurement that I used. The lengths and spacing will vary, depending on your wall space.  It's important to decide your spacing based on avoiding the outlets so that you don't have to make extra unnecessary cuts!

FAQ:

Are your walls textured?

YES, all of our walls are textured and I leave them that way. I don't find it necessary to take that extra step to put up a board to make them flat. Not worth it in my opinion. Plus, I think it actually matches better with the upper part of wall that is textured. Personal preference, no right or wrong answer here.  

If you have any questions, put them on the comments of my Instagram post with this DIY Wall so that I can answer them for everyone to see.  

HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS TUTORIAL! YOU CAN DO IT!
