Cheap and EASY Faux SHIP LAP Fireplace Makeover DIY #FixerUpperStyle

I have been wanting to Fancy up my Goodwill Electric Fireplace for a while and make it feel more BUILT in to the house. With this cheap and easy trick it looks like its been here all along. Today I am showing a CHEAP and EASY way to add SHIP LAP to your fireplace! UNDER $30
Hello Again my Beauties!
I have such a fun DIY project for you today.
As I have been mentioning on Facebook
I decided to do some FAUX know..
Let me start this project by Reminding you what the fireplace
I was going to be making over looked like in the beginning.
Way back in my blogging career I made over this Goodwill Fireplace.
I loved scoring this electric fireplace and mantel for only $79
and making it the center point of my living room.
But as much as I loved it, I always felt that it felt DISCONNECTED
from the room.
I had gone back and forth on what I wanted to do
but could just never make a final decision.
I had toyed with faux brick but thought it would look weird only doing a small section above the fireplace.
Then after multiple episodes of Fixer Upper
I decided to do a simple shiplap style backing.
So over the years, this is how it looked (all the decor had already been taken down before I remembered to take the picture)
I started with my blank slate to prepare for my shiplap.
To see all the photos and the full tutorial just hop on over to my blog
I have lots more makeovers coming up so stay tuned
for more DIY in the coming weeks.
Until next time,
Go make someones day BEAUTIFUL!
