Our first project that we tackled was our bathroom a couple years ago. I hung my first piece of shiplap in this room. The first thing we had to do was take off the paneling on the walls. I would recommend you paint the walls white before you decide to shiplap, but we didn’t know to do this at the time. I went for a more modern/industrial farmhouse feel for this room. Although I’m happy with the way this small reno turned out, in a few years we will completely gut this room out and do a second renovation.
