One of my favorite changes from our recent kitchen remodel is how we opened up the wall between the kitchen and dining room and added a kitchen island.  The island helps with overflow seating and table space when we have big family gatherings in the dining room.

We decided to add the shiplap to the dining room to make the two rooms seem more connected and open.  The shiplap really brightens up the space and hides the bumpy wallpapered & plastered walls of our 1800’s farmhouse.  Bonus, it also adds a layer of insulation to our very drafty home.  Believe it or not we have already noticed a difference!

This is also the first time I have ever had neutral walls in my dining room!  (you can read more about that here)

We found the shiplap at Lowes, (https://www.lowes.com/pd/PrimeLinx-Shadow-Gap-Shiplap-5-375-in-x-12-ft-White-Radiata-Pine-Wood-Shiplap-Wall-Plank/1000209619).  For some reason,  Lowes only sells the shiplap at it’s Philly stores.  So we had to drive into the city to buy it.


The sides are tongue and groove making it really easy to install.  It also comes pre-primed so you can wait a few days (or a few months) before feeling like you have to paint it!

We installed the shiplap in sections using a finish nailer to attach the boards to the walls.  The easy cuts I did myself while Jason cut the more challenging ones like around the electrical outlets.

You can really see what a mess this room was from our before pics.  Notice the original wallpaper we found under the crown and baseboard.

You can also see what a difference the white shiplap makes next to the dark paint we added just a few years ago.
