While updating our bedroom I decided it needed something more than four plain walls hence I decided to add a DIY shiplap accent wall.
Welcome back if you have been following along, however, if you are new to our One Room Challenge please take a look at where this makeover began with week one, week two, and week three.
Our bedroom makeover is no different while trying to source materials and decor we have found that items are out of stock and the companies have no idea when or if the item will ever be available again. Okay, that means being creative is that much for valuable during this challenge. Please visit all the participants in the ORC and hosts so you don’t miss any inspiration.
Taking a look back to last week (this photo was taken before the windows were replaced) you can see the circa 1980 bedroom look.

DIY Shiplap Accent Wall
Before installing the shiplap wall I gathered all my supplies and tools. I set up a cutting station where I could access it through the open bedroom thus saving time and creating less mess.
- White Wood Reversible Plank Paneling
- Brad Nailer
- Utility Knife
- Back Tenon Saw
- Measuring Tape
- Chop Saw
- Saw Horses
- Handy Paint Tray, liners and Cup
- Paint Roller
- Paint Brush
Modern Master Bedroom Lighting and Smart Outlets
Our master bedroom was a time capsule from the 1980’s complete with telephone, cable jacks, out-of-date outlets, and switches. All that is changing this coming week as we add layers of lighting for the ultimate relaxing experience. Mood lighting, task lighting, ceiling lighting with smart lighting and outlets.
Lighting has changed so much since 1980.
I selected lamps using this bedroom lighting guide.
I was so excited to cross off a few more items from my to-do list this week.
Add shiplap to the wall with windows Paint the ceiling and walls Replace windows
- Replace all trim and baseboards
Install recessed lighting
- Removed the old carpet and install new flooring
- Order woven-wood Roman shades
- Window treatment hardware order
Order pillow inserts
- Purchase plants
Have artwork and antique photos framed Order bedding fabrics
- Make bed skirt and pillow

I'm following each week ~ the shiplap is looking good! You're making me want a shiplap wall, too, but I don't have anywhere it would look right.
