Shiplap is definitely a hot home decor trend. It's a bit too rustic for my taste, but it's a great way to add some visual interest to any room without blowing your budget.

Shiplap wall is the hottest new trend. I love it but I am a renter and I think having a single accent wall would be attractive but I would need to be economical. Thanks for the opportunity to have this and not break the bank

This is a really great idea to achieve a very hot decorating idea for minimal cost. The blogger has included tips to make sure you achieve the smooth paint texture that is needed and that she likely figured out as she did the job in her own home. I think it looks great and I love the ingenuity of people who desire a particular look and find a way to make it happen within a budget. It is brilliant!

Love the look of shiplap and thought it would be much more costly and labor intensive to do. Keeping this in mind as we begin to remodel our little beach cottage. I'm thinking I'd love this look in our tiny bathroom. Thanks for sharing this tutorial.
