10 Ways to Use the Shiplap Look

0 comment

The beautiful modern farmhouse trend has made the shiplap look very popular, but this clean, timeless wall treatment is super versatile. The look can be achieved using actual shiplap that has a special notch aligning with the next board to form a water-tight seal, tongue and groove which uses interlocking wood pieces to add strength, or by simply nailing wooden or MDF boards to the wall. It makes sense in a variety of styles and adds interest to spaces throughout the house. I love it painted a fresh white, but it makes a rustic statement when left raw or looks modern painted black. Take a look at these 10 different ways to transform a space with shiplap. Thanks for stopping by!

STYLING TIP: Add drama to your space with an unconventional ceiling paint. Go dark to create coziness or a high-sheen white to reflect the light for a bright fresh finish.
