If you love shiplap walls, you’re probably obsessed with the rustic charm of farmhouse! To create this look in your own home, you’ll need to install various lengths of wood horizontally on a wall to create a unique and random pattern that differs from traditional paneling. For a more refined ambiance, consider alternating between different exotic woods like ebony, teak or rosewood to add a distinctive flair.
If Joanna Gaines’ designs on "Fixer Upper" are more your style, you can create a distressed look with a coat of white paint on the wood planks. Once dry, lightly buff the planks using a light grit sandpaper, paying extra attention to the edges in order to create a weathered and vintage feel.
You can further enhance your farmhouse look by painting the surrounding walls in a cool, grey hue and adding white trim to instantly create a unified, but casual feel.
