The Hideout -Day 2

Day one of our new project ended with 80% of the walls painted. All that lacked was me on a ladder hanging backwards a little on my head trying to reach the upmost part of the underneath of the stairs.

Wow…. try to close your eyes and think about that last sentence.

Day 2 started with the paint and ended with paint.

However the middle of the day was filed with luscious shiplap. It’s faux and I’ll tell you why.

Real shiplap looks like this.

It’s fabulous! However the Hideout is meant to be a sweet little space that did not require $21.48 per boards to cover the walls. However I still wanted the look.

Being a blog stalker and a Pinterest looker sometimes has its advantages

Many DIYers have been on the shiplap wagon for a couple of years so I’m a little late to the game but to save cash, the DIYers would use this:

At a whole sheet of plywood for $13.98 I was sold. We bought 4 sheets.

Now, normally my Mr. would run the sheets through the table saw but since he’s currently in a sling, our neighborhood lumber yard was kind enough to cut them into 7″ boards for me. Thanks Clark!!

Here’s a sneak peek

The faux shiplap was really easy to install.

We cut the strips to the right length and I would glue and nail them into place.

We finished the shiplap on 1 big wall and half of another and I was able to get on two coats of paint.

And look who is never far away from me.

Stay tuned!

Day 3 will commence this week.
