Shiplap In The Office – Part 1.

One thing I really wanted to incorporate on the blog more in 2016 is more of the “in between” stages of our projects & home. I think I slack on that the most & only share the final reveals. Maybe that makes our projects & rooms seem super perfect & not relatable? Well, I have a secret for you… we are regular people! Our rooms are messy during projects, They aren’t always pretty during, & I think it’s my fault for not always sharing that. So, first up? Guess what we are doing up in the office? SHIPLAP! haha surprise surprise. The rest of our house has shiplap in most of it. The difference? The rest of the house has tongue and groove boards & the office will not be tongue & groove boards. The office is a more affordable & more “DIY” friendly version which we will be sharing all in the final post, but today is just a little sneak peek of the progress of the office shiplap…






The walls just started out with plain drywall & now all of the plywood shiplap boards are up on the wall. We need to do a few trim pieces & then paint all of the boards. Wow. I have a lot of painting to do. I’m thinking of using a different color other than BM dove white that is in the rest of our house.. I know, I’m crazy. But it will probably still be in the white family so don’t think I’ve gone too crazy. Jose did all of this handy work this past weekend while I worked at the store & he did such a great job… so proud of him & his work. I will be back with the finished product, tutorial, tips & tricks, & more of that when it’s finished in Shiplap In The Office Pt.2. Leave your questions that we can answer about the DIY shiplap in the comments below, on facebook, & on Instagram. I hope you enjoyed this quick progress post & office update. It’s a pretty big mess & I can’t wait to put the room back together & get to using our office again! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today it means a lot to me. xx

    Love your home! I don’t know if it’s the white, the natural wood, or how you decorate with antiques, that I love. Your style is appealing to me. You definitely have the touch! Too bad, I live so far away (Texas). I would be in your shop everyday. Just love your decorating style, so cozy. Have fun with the office!

    Love it! I’m wanting to do shiplap in my photo studio in our new home. But there is a wall that goes up the stairs, so it’s angled. What tool would I use to measure the angles to cut the plywood? I know if I thought about it long enough, I could figure out the math. But I’m sure there’s a “tool for that.” I’m so excited for my own house finally, but mostly so I can SHIPLAP!!!

    Awww, you’re trying to be like ‘one of us’ now. How sweet. Does that make you feel more authentic? Please do share!

    Peg, is it lonely on your soapbox? Oh wait! Maybe it’s a soapbox made out of shiplap?

    Cause you’re authentic and stuff…

    ‘One of us’. Does this translate to sarcastic and ill mannered? Please, do share!

      Oh sweet sweet Thot girl, don’t worry about me. I’m not lonely at all up here on my soapbox. In fact you’d be surprised to know how many friends I have up here with me.
      How am I being sarcastic and ill mannered? Lizzie-poo asked us to speak our mind, and I am doing exactly what she wants. I always try to honest, and truthful when speaking my mind. I know it can be difficult for some people, like Liz, but you don’t have to worry about that from me.
      Have a great day, and I hope to speak to you soon!!

    I love it Liz! I am new to your blog but I find such inspiration in your posts …. every blogger needs another blogger to inspire them. I am just getting started on my blog and struggling a little with a busy schedule (it really is a full time job). Thanks for keeping me inspired!

    Como soy una ingenua y una boba volvi a insitir en el hecho de tener un sony vaio, en enero de 2011 comrpe otro portatil, a la hora de hacer el pedido insisti en la rotura anormal de la pantalla anterior la señorita del departamento de ventas, me dijo que eso no volveria pasar, ademas los ordenadores tiene garantia. Es una verguenza, es una verguenza, para determianr que le paso a un portatil se necesita como poco que un perito vea ese portatil fisicamente, a caso disponen de técnicos con poderes paranormales. Yo el problema lo tengo con un ereader 75 dias lleva en el servicio tecnico, a ver quien lo supera.
