Master Bedroom

I have had a few questions about my master isn't quite done...but here is a sneak peak!

I love the flooring in this room.  When we bought this home the carpet in this room was original to the house, so it had to go.  We wanted pine planks to continue to feel through out the house.  My wonderful Husband laid this floor (it was more work than we thought) I then stained it with Mini Waxes Early American stain, and waxed it for durability!  (post about flooring)

The color on the walls is Putty by Pratt and Lambert.  I wanted a darker color in this room so my furniture would really stand out!

I did refinished our bedroom set as well!  Surprise Surprise right??  The foot board and the head board used to have Rod Iron on it.  I didn't love the look of the rod iron with the new finish so we cut them off and filled the holes with wood doules.  My bedroom furniture was my first furniture project that got me HOOKED!!  It is actually a veneer, but it worked awesome.  I sanded it down lightly so the paint would have something to stick to, I then primed it with Kilz, I painted it with a creamy white (I forgot the color)  once everything was dry I sanded it and then glazed it.  For my glaze I used Burnt Umber Universal Tint from Sherwin Williams.  Fill a cup with water and add a little tint until you get the darkness desired.  I then painted it on and wiped it off IMMEDIATELY with baby wipes!  It sticks to the sanded areas and stays in the cracks!

But the Lamb Skin rug in my favorite.  My girls and dog, as well as myself all like to lay on it and play!  It is so so soft and fluffy!
