From the blogger: "Add some personality and detail to your kitchen island cabinets by adding trim or paneling to it. A simple weekend project that will make your home look so much more expensive and custom looking. I always liked the beadboard look, and then debated a board and batten style of trim. I ended up going with a vertical plank, which is now commonly known as shiplap. Not only does it look beautiful, it is durable, holding up to the wear and tear of four wild boys."
