Board and Batten Panel for Entryway or Mudroom

A board and batten wall panel in the entryway or mudroom can add tons of storage and beauty, as well as durability.

Here’s how you can make this happen without a home remodel hassle: Build it first in the garage or outdoors, and install it as a completed panel.

I did a VERY quick video showing how I built this project, for those of you who like to see a project come together on video.  Please take a moment to watch:

This project is designed for you to make it your own for your space.  Here’s how I built it, and some tips to consider.



Before starting this project, measure the space.  Measure out any electrical or obstacles.  

  • Avoid placing a 1×3 over an outlet, so on install, all you have to do is cut the 1/4″ plywood out with a jigsaw around the outleet, and not the 1×3.
  • Consider plywood runs in 4×8 sheets – if you go taller than 48″, you’ll need to run the plywood vertical.  You’ll want to splice different plywood sheets behind 1x3s.
  • Smooth walls – if your walls are smooth, you may not need the 1/4″ plywood on the back.  My walls are textured, so I opted for the plywood panel at the back.
