This beautiful shiplap fireplace wall brought Modern Farmhouse Style and huge impact to this Living Room!
Yea!! The shiplap fireplace wall is finally finished and I couldn’t be happier. Or more ready to start putting this room back together. I’m not sure if pictures can really explain how much this update has completely changed the look and feel of this room.
Our Living Room walls are huge. 20′ high, huge. With beautiful chunky molding and 10 extra large windows that let all of the light and the view of our backyard shine through. But, the millwork above our mantle seemed small compared to the walls and windows. It has bothered me for 6 years. I knew a full wall feature would be amazing in that room.
And, I think I was right! What do you think?? Check out the before and after photos below. And a little backstory on making this wall happen. When I walk in that room now that beautiful shiplap fireplace wall feels like a true centerpiece. It just draws your eyes up and makes the room feel grand. This room finally has the impact I knew it could. *happy dancing all over the living room*

What do you think???? I love it, even if it isn’t what I wanted. It adds so much drama. Now, here’s a little look at how this room is coming together. We mounted our flat screen TV above the fireplace using a heavy duty wall mount TV bracket with swivel and tilt. I’m so in love with this room, guys!
