After completing the floors, I turned my attention to the walls. I’ve really been wanting to put up some ship lap somewhere in my home. This seemed like the perfect spot! If you’ve looked into doing ship lap, you’d know it is actually pretty expensive. I did some research and came up with a less expensive option that still accomplished the look! It’s also only 1/4″ thick making it easier to put up on the wall. I used Under-layment panels! I know right! I actually followed a great tutorial on this process myself. Here is the link if you’d like to check it out!
Because this is such a small space, I only need to purchase one under-layment panel, costing me a total of $13.97. Here is the link for the exact product I used.
I had Lowes cut the board into my specified measurements. They do this for free BTW! Each board measures 48″x96″. I divided 48 by 6 to come up with 8 boards measuring 96″ long and 6″ wide. Then I had them cut the long boards to specific measurements for my space to align perfectly to my vanity and across the top from wall to wall. I also had him cut one piece of trim to finish off the top of my soon to be ship lap wall.

After nailing up my last board, I finished it off with my selected moulding. Here’s the finished wall so far.
