After about a year, I finally talked Big C into doing some changes in our kitchen. I wanted bead board and a chair rail on the wall behind our table because it kept getting battered. Big C isn't into home improvement projects because that's all he does at work, but I finally came up with a compromise he could agree on.
During construction.
I found this idea on Pinterest and he already had the materials to do the wood slats, so it didn't seem like such a huge production to him.

During- lots of caulking, spackle, and sanding.
I am thrilled with the compromise even if it is the 'poor man's wainscot!'

After- all finished.
I REALLY like the way the finished product looks. It turned out perfectly!

After- 2 1/2 coats of paint later...
I love the new color of blue too. I am painting my whole kitchen this blue and will use red accents. LOVE IT!
