Welp, we already got a project checked off that to-do I made last weekend (see more on that here)–we put shiplap in the basement media cabinet!! We finished it up late last night and I LOVE how it turned out. And I’ve actually wanted to do this since our basement was finished last fall, mostly because that empty space behind our TV seemed a lot bigger than I had anticipated. I actually designed the whole thing, but I didn’t plan well for the huge empty spot in between the shelves. It always looked unfinished to me. But we finally got some shiplap in that spot and it looks SO much better. Here’s how it looked before:
And here’s how it looks now with shiplap:
What a change right?! So simple, but I feel like it made a HUGE difference. It really does make this media center feel more complete and cohesive now. It’s the focal point of the whole basement.
I know it’s not for everyone, but I looooooove me some shiplap. In fact, I would be tickled pink to shiplap the entire basement one day. It just makes me happy, plus it instantly makes any space feel more cozy and inviting. Anyway, thanks for dropping by the blog today! I’d love to hear what you think of this new look in the media center. xoxo
