Hello loves, I’m excited to share another DIY with you guys!!! Let’s talk shiplap 🙂 I get asked a lot about our DIY shiplap walls. The questions are usually more like “is that wallpaper”? Haha. Well I’m here to set the record straight and finally spill about these farmhouse style walls. Although they are not technically shiplap there is real wood on our walls. I knew from the moment we found this house that I wanted shiplap somewhere. If my boyfriend allowed it I would have it on every wall but we finally decided it would look perfect as an accent wall in our bedroom and along the stairs in the living room AND I LOVE IT. But as much as I wanted shiplap we had just purchased our first home and were on a mega budget. Which means we needed to get creative. Luckily, my boyfriend get’s discounted wood at work so we started collecting these 1×6 pine boards. When we finally had enough I lightly spray painted them white to give them a more “rustic” look and we simply cut them into 1×4 and 1×6 pieces and staggered them along the wall using a nail gun. And wallah, super easy and inexpensive “shiplap”.
