A Kitchen Project: Before & After
I can't tell you guys how long I have been wanting to do a shiplap project in my house! I know the shiplap craze has been around for a while now, but I am just now getting my hands on it!
When my husband and I purchased our house, it had just been "renovated". I put that in quotes because it was done in an odd way with lots of material we would have never chosen to be in our home. For example: the stone covering the island and our kitchen floors. This same stone is also in both of the bathroom floors in our home. I don't hate the look of the flooring, I think it's actually kind of cute in a cottage-esque way. However, it has no top coat or sealant of any kind so it doesn't feel great walking with bare feet! We eventually want to completely get rid of this flooring and replace it, but for now we are doing the easier of the two and covering the island with shiplap!
The basics of doing your own DIY shiplap are fairly simple. Only a few tools required a little bit of money. In this post I am going to focus on our before and after photos rather than an in-depth tutorial. If you guys are interested in seeing a tutorial, comment below my post and let me know! I would love some feedback from my subscribers.
I am so in love with the way this project turned out! My handy hubby always makes my visions come to reality!
The look of the island before was so busy with this rock pattern. The way the painted shiplap cleaned it up and brightened the space is amazing! Of course I had to get new bar stools after this project was finished. It completed the whole look. These adorable stools are from Target! You can shop my post at the bottom of this page.
