From the blogger: "Shiplap is a great way to add some texture and warmth to a space. We added faux shiplap planks made from plywood on our kitchen island and this time I wanted the look of real wood planks. I bought some knotty cedar tongue and groove planks from Home Depot that are 6 inches tall. After filling the knots and nail holes in the planks we brought out the paint. We primed the boards to keep any sap from leaking through the wood."
