A couple weeks ago you watched us give our daughter’s bedroom a boho chic makeover complete with vertical shiplap from The Home Depot over on Instagram Stories. We’re finally here to reveal the finished space!
Before we get to all the details, let’s remind ourselves what we started with. A basic, white-walled room with zero personality.
I’ve wanted to install vertical shiplap in our home for a while and this seemed like the perfect space to incorporate it in. The Home Depot has several easy to install shiplap options, but because we wanted to paint them with the color our daughter picked out, we went with the primed 5 ¼” Ship Lap Board.
These boards come 12’ long, great quality and durable, with other length options available. We cut them down to 6’ for our vertical accent wall and let them sit indoors for a few days to acclimate to temperature.
To get started on this project we gathered up all the materials needed. The Home Depot is always a great place to start to any project.
- Tape measure
- Crow bar
- Stud finder
- Nail gun
- Painting supplies (paint sprayer)
- Kreg pocket hole jig
- Pre-Primed Ship Lap Board
- 1x4x12 (picture ledge)
- 2” nails
Using actual shiplap boards made this an extremely beginner friendly project. Another great tip is if you don’t have a lot of power tools or the ones we used above, you can still complete this project with Home Depot’s Tool Rental! They have everything from outdoor tools to drills, nailers and paint sprayers.
The shiplap went up rather quickly and once the nail holes were filled with a little bit of caulk, I used a sprayer to paint the boards with Behr Marquee in the color On Location. Using a paint sprayer isn’t essential, but it will provide the quickest, smoothest finish.
To install the picture ledge above the 6’ shiplap, my husband located the studs in the wall. Pocket holes were made in the 1x4x12 board and screwed directly into the studs. The color stain used is Golden Oak.
While I do love creating a beautiful accent wall, the decorating may be my favorite part. Did you know that homedepot.com has an amazing variety of home decor and furniture?! We refreshed our master bedroom with Home Depot decor. Everything is quality and extremely affordable.
Now that she’s getting older and having homework nightly, we ordered her this modern desk with drawer storage. I always find her sitting her now, drawing or working.
This pouf and area rug pull the whole look together and complete our daughter’s boho chic room makeover. The rug is so soft and one of the first things she mentioned when we revealed this space to her!
This project came to life so quick thanks to The Home Depot and all the supplies, tools and decor they offer!
Here’s a peak at my original mood board. The result far exceeded my initial vision!
