It seems that with the increasing popularity of the HGTV show Fixer Upper, the use of shiplap for home decor & DIY projects has also skyrocketed. Not only does shiplap have a nice, rustic appeal, but using true, original shiplap boards is a great way to re-purpose old lumber that might otherwise be destined for the dump. One of the cooler projects we’ve seen recently is a beautiful headboard, that actually doesn’t use any shiplap wood whatsoever. It’s 100% faux shiplap, but you would never know it from the construction.
The beauty of this project is that while it looks extremely complicated, you can actually complete it in a weekend with nearly all the materials coming from your local big box hardware store. Here is just a partial list of the wood & supplies you will need to build this faux shiplap headboard project at home.
