Shiplap Accent Wall and Paint | Master Bedroom Makeover

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 oneweek 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.

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.

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Our master bedroom was a time capsule from the 1980’s complete with telephone, cable jacks, out-of-date outlets, and switches.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.

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.
