Has anyone ever used fence slats to make a "shiplap" wall?

The 5" x 8' slats are pretty cheap and they look really nice when sanded. I'm going to start stockpiling them a few at a time when they're on sale until I have enough to give it a try. We've used them for window trim and they look really nice.
