Skills: Shiplap Wall Treatment


It's hard to spot a home magazine or show without seeing this wall treatment made popular by HGTV's Fixer Upper. Shiplap, the original wall, is now being recreated in homes to add instant character and is a trend we don’t see fading anytime soon. PIP's shiplap workshop provides the skills, techniques, and confidence to complete this task in your own home! BONUS: You will take home an 15"x 18" shiplapped board which can double as art work.

Experience: Beginner

Wall Treatment Investment (not included):

Your total investment will vary by size and access to materials. A 15 foot long wall by 8 feet high would cost you about $50 in the wood alone. Other materials you will need to complete this project are a brad nailer and nails, miter box, paint supplies, and optional wood fill. We will give cost saving tips and information on tool rental during the workshop, or you may reach out to a family member or friend with access to tools to complete your install if you don't have them at home already.
