Calling all Joanna Gaines wanna be’s… are you dying for the look of shiplap, but not ready to commit to the real thing? Do you currently live in a rental where you can make any changes to your living space? Or maybe you don’t have access to an arsenal of power tools at your disposal. For me, I’m the queen of indecisiveness so it’s hard for me to make a big time commitment to any design trend. The thought of destroying a whole wall of drywall for something I might not like in the future makes me a little leary.
My IG buddy Amanda @houseoncanal has this AMAZING shiplap wall in her home. When I asked her about it, she told me it wasn’t even real, and I couldn’t believe it! It was peel and stick wallpaper! After that, I was sold. I knew this DIY project wouldn’t be easy, but it would be well worth it to get the “Fixer Upper” look. Here’s how to apply shiplap wallpaper…
- Devine Color Textured Shiplap Peel & Stick Wallpaper -Ultra White (I chose to use this wallpaper, because I loved how it had texture which gives it a more realistic look. Also, I found the price to be really affordable as well.)
- Wallpaper plastic smoother
- Measuring Tape
- Craft Knife
- Ruler to use as a straight edge
