This shiplap ceiling was so easy to do, we weren’t even planning to write up the tutorial. But after we shared our post about how to make a faux beam that we made look like reclaimed wood – readers started asking us how we did the shiplap ceiling, too.
(Many people have asked where to get this gorgeous ceiling fan – it’s here.)
So here you go – a very simple tutorial for a very simple ceiling treatment!
We have so many projects to show you from our Mobile Home Makeover. We’ve finally solved the worst of the problems:
It feels fabulous to finally be working on the prettier parts that are infinitely more fun to share.
We haven’t talked much about our bunkie – which is weird because it’s one of our favourite features of our weekend getaway! We’ve barely even shown you pictures of the place.
You may have caught a glimpse of it in our recent post about how we transformed our totally tacky shed.
The bunkie is really adorable. It’s a tiny log cabin – just big enough for a double bed with a cedar chest for a nightstand/storage.
We use it for overflow sleeping when we have extra visitors – usually, it’s our daughter and her friends. (And Ed and I have been known to sneak out here on rainy days if the mobile home is overrun with noisy kids.)
Enough blah blah about the bunkie!

Step 3: Prime Your Boards
You’ll also notice that we primed our boards first. Consider doing this – it’s much faster to do them outside where you have space and don’t have to hold your arms up over your head. You can be so much less tidy which equals speed!
