Ok Ya'll, you know how much we love shiplap but how crazy is this DIY project?! These ladies are using sharpies and wall lasers for straight lines to create this look!We kind of dig it!

Here are some great examples of our creative re-purposing and a couple from around the blogosphere that you can use in your own home.
Continued post about our fabulous living room project.....We sourced all our local retailers in town to pull this look together. This couple had some amazing antiques and treasures from all over the world! It was so fun to mix the old with the new to create this "Texas Inspired" space. They also had a media cabinet that needed a face lift. They were tired of seeing all their electronics and wires so we came up with a solution they love. We used wire mesh to disguise the inner media workings and it's such a great look! There are several options when it comes to using mesh in custom cabinets. Mixed metals, gold, silver, chicken wire. Whatever your style, it's a great look that we can ...
