    What paint finish did you use on your angled board & batten wall?

      I always use an eggshell finish–something wipeable and easy to touch up, but not “shiny.” At paint stores, they will tell you to use a semi-gloss because they consider it trim work, but the sheen is really shiny on the whole wall, and it shows lots of imperfections–even ones that aren’t really imperfections. Because it’s a wall, I also don’t like to do a flat paint, since touch ups are hard, and it may have to be cleaned or touched up over time.
