Easy Shiplap and Cornices

Hi Everyone.

Thought I would show you the cornices done and hung up in the new house along with some fun shiplap I found to fill in the ugly walls space we found behind the kitchen cabinets that were taken down.
Here is the cornices Terry made before we painted and hung them at the new house.


The cornices on the large window and the smaller window.


We just painted over the paintable wallpaper with white paint.  I like the vintage pattern to this paintable wallpaper instead of just a plain boxed wood.

This is the pattern to the curtains I hung under the cornices.  It is pretty but I am going to be adding color to these windows in the form of cottage type drapes.  I want a real cottage feel to this sweet house so I am on the hunt for cottage drapes to bring in some color with all my whites.


I found a box of this peel and stick "shiplap" at Lowes.  It looks and feels like wood planks.  This one is called sea washed.  Here is the link for the shiplap peel and stick.


When took down the kitchen cabinets to put open shelves we found years of different wall textures behind the cabinets.  So instead of trying to sand plaster walls to get it smooth enough for paint we thought a shiplap look would be a great choice.

I have to say this stuff is easy peasy to hang.  It is peel and stick.  Terry nailed it to the wall too.  These planks covered up the rough spots and looks really nice.  I will hang my vintage open shelves in this area.

We also hung it under the soffit.

I will be excited to get all my chippy cottage kitchen decor out of storage and start to decorate this kitchen when all the renovations are done.

We are still waiting on the new sink.  The old one was awesome but it had a hug crack in it and was leaking.  Ugh!  So to find a sink to fit this space we had to order it.  It was not a stock item.   We will put in the butcher block counters and stain and food seal those too.  I want to do something cute with that window over the sink too.

I hope to have a kitchen reveal soon.  There have been a lot of delays for us.
We also had to order the skinny cabinets that will fit around the moved refrigerator.  You know so we can actually open the refrigerator door without it hitting the wall!!!!
So when the cabinets and sink come in this week we can hopefully take care of making the moved refrigerator work better and start to put some finishing touches to this kitchen.

So stay with me.  I will have final reveals I promise.  All my decor is still packed away until we get the garage build done and can officially move in.
Patience is the name of the game and I am running on low with it all!  I will be so excited to get the news we can move forward and begin after the permits get released hopefully this week.

Seriously trying to stay positive and patient.

Have a great rest of this beautiful summer week.
Still really missing this sweet boy.  It is a little over a month since Cooper crossed over the rainbow bridge.  I miss him so much.

On a lighter and happier note.  This sweet little one is turning one year old tomorrow. Happy Birthday  Charlotte.  Can't believe it has been a whole year since this sweet angel arrived into our family.

We will be celebrating her birthday this coming weekend.  Charlotte loves Minnie Mouse so we are having a Minnie Mouse theme party.  Should be lots of fun.

Have a great rest of the week.
Hugs to all of you.
