So last weekend I finished the bonus room floor. I really like it for being plywood but it was a lot of work that I hope to not have to do in a long long time. :)
If you don't recall what I did I first painted the sub flooring a light gray, Smooth Stone from Gliddon.
I then used a wood graining tool, white paint and a glaze to make grains into the paint.
I then went over all of that with a stain called Sun Bleached.
It is hard to see but hopefully you can kind of get the idea.
I would show you the whole floor but you will see why I didn't at the end of this post. :)
Of course certain someone's have to be in the picture.
With the floors done I started on the furniture that I planned to use.
I had a kitchen island from Crate and Barrell that I purchased a long time ago that was too big for our kitchen. I used it in my previous craft room but decided that I would try to make it a bit prettier.
I picked up Annie Sloan Coco and painted it.
It is a really pretty brownish-gray
(again, hard to see with my amazing photography skills)
It wasn't bad but it wasn't fitting into my vision so I picked up some dark stain and stained the top.
Well needless to say that sucked!
I mean it is really pretty and I like how it turned out, but it was even farther from my vision so I resorted to my backup plan.
I stole the desk from my daughters room.
All she uses it for is to gather junk that she says she needs.
I will try to find a new desk for her with drawers to hide everything. :)
here is where I am.....
I feel like I am no further from the last time I posted about this room but I am plugging away.
My goal is to get it finished before Thanksgiving.
Crossing my fingers and toes on that one!
I also want to thank you for all your wonderful comments, emails and friendship.
I am sorry if I don't get back to everyone on each post, time seems to go so quickly these days.
Please know that I read and LOVE all your comments.
