Since I'm in the process of giving my fireplace a makeover, my most recent project has been installing a shiplap wall above it. By painting the shiplap before installing, it made the entire project much more efficient and faster.
To get started I cut my shiplap to size and then lightly sanded each piece. Then I setup a drop cloth for my painting area. I then prepped my HomeRight Super Finish Max Paint Sprayer with the green spray tip and my latex paint.
Next, I started painting all my shiplap boards with 2 coats of paint.
I let the shiplap boards dry for an hour or so before I started installing above my fireplace. As you can see below I already installed 2 wood boards to frame the shiplap space. If you plan on doing this, you can also paint these ahead of time as well. Of course I forgot to do that!
You can see my entire tutorial on how to install the Shiplap wall over on my blog, A Shade of Teal.
But after the entire wall was installed, I patched the nail holes, added caulking to the seams, and then touched up all the white paint. Finally, I used my QuickPainter Pad Edge Painter to touch up the existing wall paint.
I love using the QuickPainter Pad Edger since it makes getting a clean straight edge quick and easy. There's no need to tape, just drag the QuickPainter along the shiplap edge and it works perfectly.
Here's the after of my new shiplap accent wall.
