The Modern Farmhouse's master bathroom includes a large walk-in closet and blue-green slate floors. We made the most of the closet space in terms of both functionality and style, and brought color throughout with a pale blue ceiling.
- Large wooden spherical drapery finials repurposed into cabinet door pulls (West Elm)
- Dakota Button wall hooks for bath towels that we hand painted gloss white (Restoration Hardware)
- Aluminum-framed shower door. We chose a framed door because it fit well with our design and was less than 50% of the cost of a frameless door.
- High-efficiency faucet, showerhead, and shower handheld (Hansgrohe)
- Wire corner shower basket. We were sick of those shower caddies that hang on your showerhead. Everything gets wet, the caddies inevitably rust, and those suction cups are useless. We installed a screw-mounted solid brass caddy that fits nicely in the corner opposite the showerhead. (Deltana)
- Magazine racks were the previous towel racks that we spray painted gloss white and repurposed. Toilet paper holder also spray painted.
- Slate tile on floor
- White subway tile in shower
- Bamboo floor in walk-in-closet painted glossy white
- Board-and-batten effect created with strips of wood lattice
- To give the large, unadorned mirror more presence, we framed it with thick MDF painted gloss white
- Silestone countertop on vanity
- Sherwin-Williams "Hinting Blue" above board-and-batton and on ceiling
- Sherwin-Williams "Cyberspace" charcoal on walls of walk-in closet
- Gallery white on board-and-batten
- Gloss white cabinet, trim, door
- Shaker-style vanity cabinet repainted white (IKEA)
- Closet shelving and storage in white laminate. Because there is no door to our closet, we wanted it to be neat and stylish. Shoes are kept up high, out of the way of Buck, who occasionally likes to snack on a sneaker. A built-in dresser in this closet frees us from having to place a standard dresser in the bedroom.

- Antique iron garden seat (Casa Bella, Hot Springs, AR)
- Barn light wall-mount double CGU sconces in galvanized finish with ribbed glass and clear low-wattage bulbs on dimmer (Barn Light Electric Company)
- Can lights with spot bulbs on dimmer
- Textiles & Window Treatments
- Blue and white striped cotton area rugs in bathroom and closet (Dash & Albert)
- Simple white vinyl roller shade custom cut on-site at The Home Depot, with a classic white ring pull from ShadePull.com
- Artwork & Accessories
- Vintage shaving mirror (eBay)
- "American Weekly" cover print (Plan59.com)
- Owen decanter for mouthwash - because those mouthwash bottles are seriously ugly (Crate & Barrel)
- Fancy toothbrushes and toothpaste - that Chris is not allowed to use because they for display only! But if you're a graphic design nerd like us, you should definitely check out Kikkerland's Pantone Toothbrush Set (Kikkerland.com)

What a difference a few degrees can make. The snow is retreating. Birds are chirping. The crowds have returned to the village.
Roger and I are in Atlantic City this weekend for the New Jersey Home & Garden Show. I snuck out of the convention center during a break between sessions to explore the boardwalk and take a few photos.
After doing a goat photo shoot (goatoshoot?) that involved chasing a tiny baby goat around the village and taking somewhere in the range of 600 exposures, I discovered that my camera's autofocus system was out-of-whack.
Roger and I decided that board-and-batten would make a nice addition to the look of our master bedroom. This time, I tackled the project myself. Here's how to do it and what you'll need for the project.
