Shiplap gives your home a rustic, timeless touch. Shiplap is simply the term for the a wall treatment composed of boards that have grooves cut into their edges for a tight, overlapping fit. In interior-design terms, it's a style of wooden siding characterized by long planks that are normally painted white and mounted horizontally with slight gaps between them.

The manner in which they're hung is intended to resemble exterior shiplap walls. Shiplap walls can be used to create a focal point in any room and can play up the rustic look with a few simple accessories. Make sure you measure in multiple areas, as ceilings and floors can be uneven.

Next, take the total square footage you calculated for your needs and divide it by the square footage of an individual plank to get the total amount of planks needed to complete your project. Wherever you decide to buy, make sure you compare prices and quality indicators. Shiplap prices range from $2.50 to $7 per square foot for real boards. Those prices can vary depending on the length and width of the board you're using for your project. Remove everything from your walls, including all trim, molding and baseboards. Using a level, draw a straight horizontal line from one end of the wall to the other.

Line up the top edge of the bottom row of boards with the horizontal guideline you created. Place a nail through the top and bottom of each plank where it crosses a stud. You can use nickels as spacers between each row of shiplap to give it a more authentic look, or you can simply butt the boards together. Repeat nailing and gluing until the entire wall is covered.
