I have missed you all but had a great week last week unplugging for a bit.
It was so nice here so we took advantage of the weather and played outside.
I really do not like raking leaves but watching the boy play in them was so fun, he just makes me laugh.
I also got a little bit of time to work on the bonus room floor.
Here are a couple photos of the wood graining process so far.
It is turning out ok for the most part but like I had said earlier, it is difficult to get a nice wood look when the plywood is rough and uneven.
I love the shabbiness of it so I am good with it.
I have also decided to add another process to it, not sure why I do this to myself.
I found a stain called Sunbleached at Lowes and I love it!
I played around with it on my sample board and it really warmed up the wood so I am going to apply that over top the stain like you see above in the corner there.
I will then sand some of the areas to get a more warn look.
Well at least that is what I have in my mind as of now.
Here is how the whole room looks so far.
It is hard to see the floors but I am about a little over half way done with the graining.
I didn't fill the lines where the boards meet cause, well, I am lazy. I would tell you that it looks more shabby that way but that really isn't the case. :)
I am hoping with a few area rugs that it won't be so bad.
The weather has turned cooler and windy here so this is my goal for this week.
Have a wonderful week!!
