Guys, my husband gave me the best Christmas present!! SHIPLAP…oh, finally!! It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Well, it’s actually a faux shiplap wall, but it looks just as great and for way cheaper. I admit, I’ve been a total nag about it. He finally realized I wasn’t giving up and bought everything he was going to need this year on black Friday. He’s my favorite! I knew I wanted it in my home in a few places, and I thought the best place to start was in a hallway that connects our living room to our kitchen. We decided to go with a planked wall instead of real shiplap. Here are a few reasons why we went with planked vs. shiplap.
