How to create your own DIY Shiplap walls for your home

In partnership with our friends at Giani

If there is one thing I absolutely love it’s anything that is D.I.Y. (Do it Yourself) because nothing turns out better when you put your own heart and soul into it. Shiplap is something everyone is talking about. Why? Because it adds so much character to your space and gets the conversation going.

If you google shiplap, you will find an array of gorgeous photos of wooden boards used in construction, barns, and other rustic areas of the home that has become all the rave. It’s because the look has clean lines, and looks built-in and professional. Real shiplap costs hundreds of dollars.

You can create any shiplap wall inside your home for mere pennies using a homemade DIY (shiplap wall kit) that makes creating your very own shiplap wall for your home – easy breezy!
