@dolcegirl: See all these (link) thousands of photos of shiplap rooms and look at the edges. There are a zillion ways of finishing the edges at the floor, ceiling and corners. I have tongue and grove and I have flat at the floor, small round at the ceiling and corners. But then I have a ranch house detailed like a real ranch house (cause it is LOL).

I'm not concerned about the floor, that's a no-brainer. It's the edges at the corners of the adjoining walls that I asked about as they're highly visible. As for the photos, I haven't seen many that show enough detail to see the finishing. So, you used corner round, thanks.

@dolcegirl: You can also use small square molding (wood or plastic), too. They are only highly visible if you decide to make them so. Mine meld into the tongue & groove look. Everything is stained, not painted, so their are different shades. I also have a flat wood "molding" for a picture rail that runs around the room(s) tying into each window upper frame. It looks very countrified and fits with the exterior of the house, too.
