The stairwell is really just like the story “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie.” Once I started one project it led to another and here we are. I found the perfect solution to brighten up these walls and add dimension. When I found these amazing pre-finished shiplap boards from Timeline, there was not stopping this project.
I have always envisioned wrapping my stairwell in beautiful molding. However, it just seemed like a lot of work. Finding a molding to fit behind baseboards and trim is tricky. Then once you get it all up there is still all the painting to be done. Needless to say, I put this project off for a long time because of all the obstacles.
Well, that all change when I discovered Timeline Wood. They actually make shiplap that is thin enough to fit behind baseboards and window trim. It also comes with the classic nickel-gap spacing just like real shiplap! I was so excited about all of those features that my stairwell started to come to life.
Here is the best part of Timeline Shiplap: It comes PRE-FINISHED! That is right people. The shiplap is already painted in the color you choose. Timeline offers white, greige, black, green, and navy all ready to be installed. Once you put it up on the wall, you are done! That is worth its weight in gold right there. You just need to caulk, fill the nails holes and do touch up. A huge time saver to have the majority of the painting already done!
I was so thrilled about this amazing shiplap and got right to work on my stairwell. Mr. Whitelane got an unexpected work trip out of the country so I had to call in my friend Coby to help. He did our kitchen backsplash on the main floor and basement. Coby also does trim and finish work. He was amazing to step in and help us since Mr. Whitelane couldn’t be here.
It was such a relief to not have another step to do after the boards were installed. The pre-spaced gap, the clean smooth finish, and thin non-warping MDF made this install super easy. A DIYers dream is everything this Timeline Shiplap is made of. Timeline is also giving you 10% off sitewide with code “WHITELANE10.”
I kind of want to shiplap all of the things now. It is so simple and makes such a statement! I am thinking the black shiplap is next on my list of projects. 🙂 I just need to pick a wall.
