Herringbone Accents

After painting and updating the exterior of our house we were looking for a way to add some more modern accents. Here is what I did.

herringbone accents
Step 1 determine sizeAfter measuring the area where these would be installed I determined the measurements around 52 inches long and between 18-20 inches wide. Using 1×4 Cedar fence picket board I cut to length at 52inches. 6 boards side by side made up 22inches I decided to go with the for width.

Step 2 Start patternAfter cutting each piece down to length and laying out on work bench I then used the cutoff pieces to start my design. 6 boards made it pretty simple to find my center point. I aligned each piece starting at bottom corners to the center. Staggering for the herringbone pattern.
