✖️hammer – circular saw – hand saw – paint brush ✖️
I’m slowly updating all areas of our home to make it my dream farmhouse! I decided I needed some Shiplap in our home and the best place to put it was our kitchen! Every time I do something I think of resell, I’m not saying we want to sell anytime soon but I always think of the market in my area and what standard of home I need to maintain. That standard means not to go all crazy with Shiplap haha!
✖️ the timber I used is the pine lining board from Bunnings- 140 x 12 x 3900mm
✖️ the area I did I used 10 boards ( we have 3m ceilings) from memory they were roughly $8.80 a piece.
✖️ I used bullet head nails 25mm to nail into the studs – I didn’t use any glue to hold them. I did this in case I change my mind and want to remove them down the track, it will be easy to take them off the wall.
✖️this type of board clicks into each other as well which holds it into place.
✖️ Hubby who is a qualified electrician removed the lights – I cut a board around the holes and then he installed them again.
✖️ above the window I had to trim down a little piece to slide in to fill the gap you can see here
✖️ I used left over paint from my window trim and painted the wall the same colour
Total cost $83.00 and it took half a day to install!
