This is where you rip your shiplap (utility panel) to the width you want.

I did mine to 5inches wide. I started against the shower for the first piece and worked my way across the wall.

I used my metal flat rod to space the vertical shiplap out and a nail gun to hold it in place. I worked my way across the wall until I came to the bathroom cabinet. Once I was at the bathroom cabinet, I then shorted the length of the shiplap piece to make it the same height as the other pieces.

Once the vertical shiplap was up. I used White Dove again to paint the ship lap with a brush and wall roller.

After the paint was dry,

I added a piece of molding across the entire section of vertical shiplap. Once I nailed it up, I painted it with the same paint color.

Then I took a 1/2 inch piece of molding across the top of the bathroom vanity to create a crisp line

Last part that I did was to paint the cabinet with Sea Salt.

    I love your project and the shower curtain! Can you share where you found it?

    I guess you had to paint the walls first before putting up the shiplap to keep from showing through?? And what was the metal thing used for that you mentioned? Everything looks gorgeous by the way!!!
