I have been wanting to add shiplap to a wall in my living room for awhile but we have so many other projects going on that we just haven't gotten around to it. Yesterday I decided to give it a very faux shiplap look while I wait for the real thing to happen!
I read about this technique on the Wicker House Blog. With a yard stick, a level and a mechanical pencil, I did my best to make sure the lines were even and straight. They aren't perfect but I love the way it looks!
The above picture was taken with my phone so it is not very good quality but you can kind of see the shiplap lines. Since we were already making changes, I had my husband build me a rustic shelf to hang on the wall and I decorated it with some of my Decor Steals goodies.
This is now my favorite wall in the house! I have more things that need to be added and I think it will be fun to incorporate holiday decor into it as well. I love when I get an idea in my head and then I get to see it come to reality!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by, especially since I am such a slacker when it comes to my blog these days!
