When Ashely, the crafty blogger behind Little Glass Jar, decided to introduce shiplap into her home, she started by testing the waters in her pantry. After all, it was a space she’d been wanting to redo anyway. If she didn’t like it, it was just a small closet — it’s not like she was committing an entire wall to the stuff.

The before — with generic wire shelving — was obviously nothing special. It was a pantry (yay!) but didn’t offer much inspiration (boo!).

To get started, Ashley and her husband went to Home Depot and got a few 8×12 sheets of plywood (for less than $12 each!), which they then had cut into six-inch-wide strips at the store’s cutting center. The couple did a little more trimming and sanding at home, and got to work installing and painting the pieces. They added dark-stained shelving and then it was time for the fun part: decorating the pantry with pretty baskets and jars.

The result looks like something you’d see on Fixer Upper. Now Ashley wants to put shiplap everywhere — and we don’t blame her! What do you think?
