as you may have seen in the last post, SHIPLAP…this project stemmed from the obsession we had with the raw wood look of our loft wall prior to painting it.
i convinced kyle to do another big project. a herringbone pattern wood wall in our master bedroom.
let me tell you folks…we.were.nervous about this one. if you didn’t know, kyle and i are pretty new to this house thing. he’s just getting his bearings with the saw and we’re kinda learning as we go with these projects.
but as usual…he’s a complete stud and we totally brought my dream to life here. it actually came out better than i could have envisioned. and i gotta tell ya…i love waking up and looking at it every morning.
here she is before…an awesome blank canvas. 🙂 layin down the pattern.board number one….rocking that pattern. (these were the easy ones…)here she is…kyle gave me the awesome task of staining her…and there she is, COMPLETE! and with our dresser and tv back in place…
and i’m pretty sure i never shared the rest of our master bedroom on here..so here’s that!small, simple and us. we love it.
thanks for lookin guys!
alright so i know there’s a few of you out there who love you some fixer upper!
if you have no idea what i’m talking about, then this post might not be of great meaning to you. but if you dooooo……then i think you’ll enjoy it. 🙂
i, of course, after falling head over heels for the gaines’ love of original shiplap wood walls, wish i could have shiplap on every wall of my house. i absolutely love the simple texture it gives. and it’s crazy how something so simple can change a room completely.
i’m still trying to convince kyle to shiplap our 20 foot great room wall…..(it’s not lookin good)
but this was the perfect start…
the loft before…getting started…
some people cover up the lines between each board, to have the illusion that they are one solid board all the way across, but i like the look of the staggered pieces. but well, ocd. so we decided to create a pattern with our wood so we it would be aesthetically pleasing to the eye, not just random boards put together.
almost there…kyle nailing up the last board…fillin holes and prepping for paint.go time!
finished wall.and finally….all decorated!
that raw wood look had kyle and i second guessing ourselves whether to leave it wood or paint it like we planned. i had THIS ^^ vision in my head for so long, so after sleeping on it – we decided to paint it like i originally planned. this also then stemmed the idea to create a wood wall in our master bedroom…
i’ll post that one next. ❤
