Old shiplap cannot be replicated ... the real deal is so awesome. Such texture and character!

Schumacher...I understand that one! I did one wall of wallpaper in our first house and it was my pride and joy!

You can do this! Build that table and find the sideboard. If anybody can, you can. ;)

Shiplap! YAY! Just like The Fixer Upper….I love that show!
Sometimes you can convince design centers that sell expensive fabrics to give you remnants. I have a friend who got some for free….very expensive fabric…and covered canvases and hung them on her wall. They make a pretty display!

Oh, it will be wonderful! As far as the sideboard, I'd look in antique stores, for pieces made when your house was built -- their proportions will work better & the quality will far surpass what you find new.

With fabric...sigh...I hear you...I have been looking for the perfect fabric for bedroom curtains for years & I only like the ones that would cost almost as much as a mortgage payment. :(

Love to read comments, learn all kinds of tips and tricks.
Agree with previous commentor about finding sideboard at antique store. That seems to be a looser term so often different pieces will meet criteria of what a sideboard is. Good luck finding the perfect fabric, follow other commenters advice .What do you have to lose?
Have fun with all this, you can be proud after all your hard work.
