Shiplap

|Entry Redo|

Posted on

Our entry has been blah for pretty much the entire time we have lived at our house. We added paint and a new light fixture, but it wasn’t enough. I wanted to brighten it up and make it inviting! 

We came across a hell of a deal at Lowe’s over the weekend that we couldn’t pass up. HARDWOOD floors that were originally $75 a box for only $25 a box! 

Now, if only we could have replaced the flooring in our entire house. Anywho, quick, easy install. It looks absolutely gorgeous. I told my husband I wanted to move my chair to the front entry and just live there. 

We created faux shiplap by cutting a 4×8 piece of 5mm plywood into strips of 6 inches and spacing it about a nickel’s width apart. 

I went through and painted in between the cracks with a brush and then rolled the rest. I had a light yellow color behind the planks so I didn’t have to paint the wall before installing the faux shiplap. *YAY*






Check out how great it turned out. Let me know what you think!

Voila! 


All in all, this entire entry way project with flooring, closet door, faux shiplap, and paint [we already had the trim] cost less than $200. SCORE!

Our next work in project is the front door. We have stripped the paint from it and will be staining it. Before and afters coming soon πŸ™‚

Until the next door opens,

Posted on Updated on

Ya’ll… The guest bathroom isΒ done(~ish)! Done enough to post! [We lack painting the open shelving] It has been long over due, and I am so glad that it is functioning. Three people and one bathroom under one roof just doesn’t cut it for me. Especially with me being the only girl in the house! [I need my space.]

First off, please keep in mind that we gutted this bathroom [top to bottom], which is why it took fooooorrrreeevvver! So worth it in the end.


During Demo: What a mess!

Replacing and installing insulation in the subfloor.

Floor ductwork and platform built for AC unit.

Moving light fixtures and putting up headboard ceiling.

Shiplap everywhere! πŸ™‚

Floor leveler down and sanded. Flooring installed.

Cement board for tiled shower installed & remaining shiplap installed.

Tile Installation, Grouting and Sealing.

Finishing Touches.

 

And Voila! We have a functioning bathroom! :]

Until the next renovation,
