If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you know I love me some shiplap…
We’ve done the super cheap faux shiplap walls by ripping down thin 1/4 inch sheets of plywood and installing either horizontally or vertically in bathrooms.
We’ve made our own tongue and groove plywood shiplap in the living room at our old house. Heck, we’ve even installed a shiplap ceiling in our boho office.
It’s not secret. I love shiplap!
This dark shiplap wall ideas contains affiliate links, but nothing that I wouldn’t recommend wholeheartedly. Read my full disclosure here.
But you know I also love dark and moody paint colors – as we’ve incorporated in our master bedroom two tone walls, our budget bathroom makeover with dark green walls, and even our recent modern boho living room makeover got a dark gray paint color.
In fact, you can check out all of the colors in our house here.
So it should come as no surprise that I love the combination of shiplap walls painted with dark and moody colors – even black!
