DIY Shiplap on a Budget

Shiplap, shiplap shiplap… For the first year or so of hearing Joanna Gaines drop the shiplap word, I just kept saying… I am more of a rustic wood wall girl.

We basically went about a year without at coffee table while I looked for one that worked well in our space. I found an inspiration piece on a trip and used supplies from my garage to pull it together.I admit my garage may have more random materials stashed in it than most... But these items are not too hard to find & came together to make a gorgeous unique coffee table that even has a built-in den for small pets.

Secretary Heads to the Bar

I found this old secretary desk for sale & immediately saw the possibilities! She was missing a shelf, & actually needed all shelves replaced.
