I mentioned sometime this year that we had been given a lot of boards that could either be tongue in groove or look more like shiplap.
I was going to go shiplap in the stairwell to the basement, up the huge wall that is difficult to do anything with and around into the kitchen. But I've changed my mind. I decided to use the board vertically, tongue in groove style, as I think long term it will suit my cottage style better.
The stairwell has been a huge eyesore the many years we've lived in our cottage, and I had been eager to get this project started but having our own business means that sometimes our personal projects take a backseat to work.
This past Saturday, Tim got started on it as a surprise for me!
