    You’ve come so far!! It so beautiful. A great tutorial as always. Question: you didn’t put any trim around the planking at all? Just cut it really tight and caulked well?

    • Shayna says:

      Thank you so much! No, we didn’t put any trim around the top or bottom of the planking. We made sure to cut it really tight to the ceiling, and then I caulked any gaps. It looks fabulous!

    I am interested in giving the underlayment a try. I’m curious if you paint in between each slat or if it isn’t really noticeable if the gaps don’t get covered. It looks fantastic!

    • Shayna says:

      Thank you! In this case, I didn’t need to paint the wall since it was already a creamy white color. If your wall is a vibrant color, I would paint it. When it’s white on white, or white on dark, the gap between the planks creates the dark shadow. In my last home, I did repaint one of my white plank walls a dark color and then I had to paint each individual gap the same color since the previous white wall was peeking through! It was a pain, but I made it through, haha! I hope that helps! 🙂

    This kitchen cabinet refinishing is beautiful! I love the dark cabinets with the white countertops! So beautiful.

    Hi! I am wondering if he just nailed the planks onto drywall. Did he have to look for studs first?

    I absolutely love what you have done with your kitchen. You have really made a jewel out of it. What kind of wood are your shelves made from and is there a stain or topcoat to protect the shelves?

    • Shayna says:

      Thank you so much! We’ve come such a long way from where we started! Our shelves are white oak, but our cabinet maker used a melamine material and they look fantastic! They hold up incredibly well to everyday use.

    How thick are the shelves?
