Several months ago we added “shiplap” to out guest bathroom downstairs.
By the way, that’s a terrible photo because I haven’t finished the bathroom and taken “real” photos yet. Remember – I have a house full of unfinished projects and my new self-imposed rule is to finish one project before moving on to anything else.
That brings us back to the playroom and today’s #makeovermonday project. We’re almost finished with our updates in this space and I had an idea to use up some of the leftover shiplap wood we had from the bathroom walls to make shelves.
This is what our chalk wall behind the stage looked like as of 6pm this afternoon.
The kiddos can’t reach up high to write on the wall so that space is a bit wasted. And I’m always looking for a place to display their artwork, so we took pieces of the leftover shiplap to make a ledge shelf up towards the top of the chalk wall.
This turned out sooooo good! And it might be one of the easiest DIY projects to complete. I love the unfinished look, as well.
Brian cut the pieces to fit our wall and nailed them together to create a ledge. Then he nailed the bottom piece directly against the wall. Simple and easy!
We had a few more pieces of wood left so we created another smaller shelf over the bench beside the stage.
Here is the before:
I found the little hooks at Lowe’s for $3.25 each.
Yes, I need to replace that photo print with a more up to date one that includes our newest child!! Ha!
This room is coming together better than I ever imagined. It is one of the coziest and most fun places in our entire house.
Come sit a while, I’m sure our kiddos could entertain you for hours!
