How to Build a Shiplap Photo Wall Backdrop DIY

In Blog by Jerad HillLeave a Comment

Shiplap is all the craze so when my wife asked me to help her build a backdrop for a photo booth, we thought, “why not shiplap it!” Shiplapping something is not really hard, it just involves cutting and painting the wood.

If you went 50/50 on something instead of just 100% on one thing, how could that change your life? This may be a weird statement coming from a person who is self-employed, but my goal for 2017 is to transform my income stream.
