Hello my friends, hubby and I recently finished our
first project of '2017'
Joanna Gaines has gotten many of us in a tizzy wanting to add shiplap to our homes. :)
A few years ago I had mentioned to my hubby that I wanted to run bead board horizontally in my sewing room. I had seen it in a magazine, but had never heard of shiplap. Well, I didn't want to wait, so I ended up just painting it.
Still, visions of shiplap ran rampant through my head. Next, I thought it would be fun in my laundry room. Hubby agreed to take on the project. When I was down loading my car with items from my friends Aunt's estate, hubby found a U-Tube Video showing just how to do it. When I returned home he said that the laundry room was going to be a bit of work because he'd have to cut around all the cabinets. So I suggested doing just one
wall in our bedroom.
Loving the look!
This is what the wall looked like before.
I almost forgot to take a photo. This was when I had stripped the bedding and we were getting ready to pull the bed out of the way.
The wall really was a softer yellow. I wasn't tired of it, just wanted shiplap. lol! Telling it like it is.
It gave the room a farmhouse feel, don't you think?
One thing leads to another. :) Now I need a new lamp. I already dropped my old one off at our local thrift shop.
Did you notice the wicker picnic hampers in the corner? When I was painting the shiplap, I got paint happy and painted them as well. They use to reside in our family room, but now have a new home in the bedroom.
Not sure if I love them, but oh well; it's done!!
Not the greatest photo.
We cut our own 6" shiplap from 1/4 inch plywood sheets.
Primed with Kilz, sanded, and painted before we put them up. Then all I had to do was touch up where the nail gun holes were. We nailed and glued them up. Do you know that you place a nickel in between boards for spacing? I had no idea!
Yes, we did this in the kitchen. Baby it was too cold outside!
I have one more plan for this room, but I haven't laid it on the hubs yet. (wink)
