Honesty is the best policy. And in all honesty, I don’t think I could ever lie to you guys anyway even if I wanted to.
I’m not a shiplap fan.
That’s not a secret around here.
It’s not so much that I dislike shiplap itself, I think I dislike more that it’s freakin’ everywhere. Everywhere, y’all.
I now fully understand why Woody disliked Buzz so damn much.
I mean, come on. Fly your own freak flag! Don’t be swayed by the trends!
Ok, I’ll stop. If you do love shiplap, that’s great. Go for it. Own it. I’m just owning not liking it. At all.
These wall treatments are ones that I’ve done in the past and ya know what? You guessed it – they don’t include a single inch of shiplap. Hopefully, they will inspire you to whip a wall into shape with your own spin on it. And if they don’t, then there are four more gals sharing their wall treatments sans shiplap today and then 15 more bloggers sharing theirs throughout the week.
That’s right. It is anti-shiplap week up in here, ya’ll! Get excited.
If you’re coming over from Suburban Bitches, welcome! Here’s hoping I can live up to Erin and Tricia’s wall treatments!
7 Wall Treatments That Aren’t Shiplap
My Master Bedroom Accent Wall
This wall is probably my most favorite one ever. I love the design, I love the black and white, I love how the mid-century dresser looks in front of it. I love it all. You can see how I made it here and see more of the final product here.
The Carpet Covered Wall
Yes. I did cover a wall with carpet. Green carpet. And I love it. It added just the right amount of color and texture to this wall. See how I did it here.
Cane Inspired Accent Wall
This wall added some much needed interest and color to an otherwise all white bathroom. It has a cane inspired feel, but was pretty easy to accomplish. Read how I did it here.
Criss-Cross Wall Treatment
This wall was one of my first bigger DIY wall treatments and I was so happy with how it turned out. It’s a simple criss-cross pattern, but also classy at the same time. Find out how to make this wall here.
Black and White Gallery Wall
Some people like gallery walls that are more “random” in terms of what they have on it. I often prefer clean lines though. This black and white gallery wall also helped to make the television disappear. See how I did it here.
Ahh, the confetti wall. It was such a fun project and super simple too. This wall was in the entryway at our Beloved Foreclosure so guests knew what to expect when they entered. 🙂 Find out how to do it here.
Half and Half Walls
In Bill’s room at our old house, we painted one wall completely black, one wall completely white and the two other walls half-black and half-white. It gave it a really cool modern effect, while still keeping the room from not feeling too dark from all the black. See more of the space here.
That’s all I got right now – I have a few more wall treatments brewing up in my head though. Of course, none include shiplap. 😉 Up next today is Cassie Bustamante – you’ll love her earthy, vintage, eclectic style!
