The Look of Stone Without the Time and Mess

Adding those stone accents can be accomplished without the typical mortar, lath, and scratch coats: Versetta Stone stone siding offers the same look and feel as natural stone but in a panelized format that traditional siding contractors and builders can install themselves using nails or screws.Illustrating one example of how Versetta Stone is utilized inside and outside of a home is the story of Trisha Dokken and her modern Minnesota farmhouse.The result is a cozy-yet-fresh interplay of white shiplap, weathered woods, crisp stone, and striking blacks.Having used the product on a previous project, Moran introduced her to Versetta Stone.Carved Block, the newest profile, has a chiseled texture that mimics split-faced stone for a contemporary look ideal for modern homes and light commercial applications.

How to Install Your Own DIY Plank Wall

Step 1 – Measure your walls (width x height) to estimate how many boards you will need for your wall.You will need to use a professional nail gun, and make sure that you are keeping the board level as you nail evenly across it.If you want to have a more rustic shiplap wall, then skip this step all together.

White Painted Stone & Shiplap Fireplace Makeover

Fireplace Mantel Makeover Contest: Summer HoganGet quotes from up to 3 pros !For this makeover, we took a builder-grade mantel and fireplace and gave it a dramatic facelift in less than four days.

White Painted Stone & Shiplap Fireplace Makeover
My plan was to fill in the holes between the stone of the existing fireplace surround with grout and paint it white, creating a modern, cohesive fireplace surround.

Shiplap Around My Fireplace

662 shares FacebookTwitterPinterestWe love a good wall treatment and this DIY shiplap around my fireplace is no exception!So technically this is a faux shiplap wall, which we typically call plank walls!
