Easy DIY Shiplap Wall {tutorial}

Good morning! This summer we will celebrate our 2 year anniversary in our new home, buuuuut believe it or not I still have projects from our old home that I haven’t shared! ha! Sooooo I thought I’d better get on that. ;) This is a tutorial I shared as a guest post on another blog several years ago, and it inspired the real shiplap we have in our home now. I just love clean look at shiplap (or planks!). Annnnnd I hope this design trend becomes a staple for many years to come. It’s also an easy weekend project that just about anyone can tackle with just a few inexpensive supplies and a few hand tools. We spent under $50 for this project. Let me show you how! :)

I am so excited to tell you all about the Cricut Joy! I love that it’s small enough to put anywhere (you do not need a craft room!), it’s great for the craft newbie and so versatile that experienced crafters will want to add it to their crafty arsenal even if they already own a Cricut or two! ;) This little machine is so handy, and there are so, so, so many different ways I could use the Cricut Joy in my home. It was hard to narrow down to what direction I wanted to head first. I finally decided on organization. Organizing is my second love behind crafting. Annnd the Cricut Joy combines both of these! So, let me show you 5 Ways to Get Your Home Organized with the Cricut Joy. Let’s go! :)
