First comes house….then comes house projects! We made our list, we checked it twice, and the projects began!
Paint, nails, plywood…we jumped aboard the farmhouse trend train & our DIY shiplap wall was born.
So let’s start with the basics:
- 8′ X 4′ X 1/4″ plywood (we used 3 sheets) cut into 8″ strips
- 1″ wire brads
- 1 gallon of semi gloss white paint
- 2 pennies for spacing
We started by cutting the plywood sheets into 8″ strips which was the most time consuming part. After the strips were cut, it was smooth sailing & we started nailing each board to the wall.
TIP: Use the pennies to keep the spacing equal between each board 🙂
Almost finished…one more board!
Two coats of white paint & voila….
Hello shiplap wall!
And for the finishing touches…decor!
Wooden letters: Hobby Lobby (added twine and black paint for an extra farmhouse feel)
Hanging tin baskets: Decor Steals (this sight is AMAZING! but be warned…you will become addicted!)
