Master Bedroom Makeover with Board and Batten

It all started with iPhone pictures that I took of my Master Bedroom nearly 4 years ago when I was on my lunch break from my Corporate job. I uploaded those images, which were less than perfect (especially since I probably had some ancient version of the iPhone back then) and I hit publish. Little

Last year when I attended the Influence Conference I had a different attitude and mindset than I normally have at conferences. I went there with the desire to meet and make new friends. I'm usually the type of girl who would rather stay with "my people" and NOT meet new women. Because
