Shiplap is the Hottest Trend in Western Décor

By  | 

Traditionally used as an exterior siding on barns, other outbuildings, and homes, shiplap is becoming the “it” trend in interior decorating. It’s taking on a life of its own in terms of western décor. As with most finishes, the quality of craftsmanship is key in the final product or outcome, but ideally, shiplap makes for a great do-it-yourself project if you have the time, the tools, and a flair for design. And, of course, barn board is something there’s no shortage of here in Texas! Here are some dreamy home projects that prove shiplap is to homes what coconut oil is to the body.

2. Custom Headboard
