15+ DIY Shiplap and Planked Wall Tutorials You Should See!

Not all of us are lucky enough to have Chip and Joanna find original shiplap in our house. But we can DIY shiplap and use these planked wall tutorials!

I think no matter what decorating style you call your own, you have very likely seen shiplapped or planked walls in homes lately. This trend has mostly been associated with the Farmhouse/Fixer Upper style, although it can really translate well in any style.

We applied horizontal planking to our last house’s bathroom makeover.

We also created the look of shiplap with cheap plywood in our modern farmhouse kitchen makeover in the spring.
