Oh my gosh this post has been a year in the making how bad is that!!! We finally finished Beckhams Room! So to start off we decided that we want’s ship lap in his room. So first we did that wall and painted it gray. Then we wanted to give him a huge chalk board. All we did was get a large sheet of quarter inc plywood screwed it to the wall then Adam did a very simple frame around it made out of 3/4 inc plywood strips. Then we just sealed it with a clear wipe on poly. Super easy you guys! Then We painted the quarter inc plywood with a chalk paint! Adam made him a headboard we did a shiplap wall and shelves above the bed. He loves the way it turned out so that’s all that matters.
For the shiplap wall I had Home Depot cut down a sheet of MDF for me into strips. Then for spacing I just used a penny on this wall.

Also always start putting the wood up from the top and go down. that way you have full pieces at the top and then if it is smaller on the bottom no one notices.
We then made shelves for this wall and Adam also mad a headboard out of strips 3/4 inc plywood and we just did a clear water based wipe on poly to seal it. The chalk wall is also a sheet of quarter inc plywood that we screwed to the wall and then put a super easy trim around it made from 3/4 in plywood.
I used IKEA Spice racks for the book shelves. They are perfect and cheap at only $3.99 each.
The bench under the window is from IKEA and then we added legs to it that are also from IKEA I linked it all below for you guys.
