I’m still away on military duty, so I can’t really post any step-by-step how-to details, but I thought I would post one of our finished projects.
This is a picture of our Master Bedroom. There are several money savers here:
- The flooring is beautiful 2×6 heart pine flooring that we bought from someone who had torn down an old warehouse…and we only paid $2.50 per 16′ board!
- The ceiling is made of 1×6 boards that we purchased at auction…for 25 CENTS per 16′ board.
- The ceiling trim is made from the same 1×6 boards with a decorative pattern applied with a cake decorator tip and sheetrock mud!
- The ceiling medallion is made from an old ornate wall clock!
Here are a couple of close ups…
BTW, the room changed colors many times…paint is cheap! Maybe Elizabeth can chime in on some of the savings on the furnishings in the room…
