Conservatory Skirting

Never able to accept the 'standard' criss-cross skirting material they sell for this sort of thing, we decided to make our own skirt boards for the conservatory.

We ripped down a ton of cedar fence pickets into tiny strips, individually painted them with oil paint (two coats), then nailed them up in a repeating pattern (two narrow, one wide).  It took a few days, but I'm glad we did it this way - it looks fantastic!
