Attention all Joanna Gaines wannabe’s… If you didn’t already want to shiplap your entire home before today, you will want to now.
Because 2 things:
- It is so super EASY.
- It is so super INEXPENSIVE.
Oh and… 3. You will feel like you need your own #fixerupper show and that Jo Jo and Chip should invite you over for homemade chocolate chip cookies.
I mean, one day, her and I are gonna become best friends. She might not know it yet, but trust me… we are soul sisters. Side pony’s and all. #friendshipgoals
Enough about my Jo Jo obsession and more about HOW easy and inexpensive it is to DIY Shiplap.
I want to make one thing clear about this whole “shiplap” debate. We did not use REAL shiplap. Real shiplap has grooves and jazz that plain plywood does not. We used cheap plywood to get the look of real shiplap. I personally think it looks just as good, if not better!
I’m gonna do less talking and more showing… I know that’s what y ‘all want anyway.
We (and by “we” I mean me and my dad) decided to shiplap the powder room bathroom. This is the bathroom right off our kitchen and the one that is used the most by our guests. I had to take down a very serious gallery wall to make this shiplap project happen. Thankfully I have nine thousand more gallery walls so all is good. Ha!

Anyone can tackle this DIY project.
Even if you have never used a power tool or picked up a paint brush – I promise you – You can do this.
If you like these corner shelves… have no fear, we have a video tutorial for that too —> HERE.
Another one of my FAVORITE parts of this entire bathroom? This AMAZING sign by Between You And Me Signs.
I found Tara, the shop owner, on Etsy and guess what… Jo Jo sells their signs – go figure! Explains why I fell in love with Tara’s shop. Ha! I shall now refrain from buying every sign in her shop and re-doing all my gallery walls.
Another DIY included in this project was the bathroom light fixture. I have SUCH a hard time replacing things that work perfectly fine and have nothing wrong with them besides I am tired of them.
Sooooo, I took some spray paint to this bad boy and changed out the light covers for these industrial ones and BOOM!
A whole new look and way less expensive than buying an entire new light.
You may also notice that I like to decorate with the letter “R”. All I can say about that is… at least it’s not a rose.
On the day I finished this project, my husband left for work and said, “I’m worried I’ll come home tonight to our entire house covered in shiplap.”
“Be worried. Very worried.”
