Zollers Kids Rooms

We recently helped some friends of ours remodel their kids rooms. They had a tight budget, so my husband went through the garage and found remnants he could use. The girls room was 1 ft too long for the piece we brought, so we got creative. We used another remnant and installed it in the middle of the other one. It looks like a real expensive rug in the middle of the floor. LOVE IT!
Heres how the rooms turned out!

 Sorry about the pics, I couldnt get a good angle. I will post some of the boys room later.

It was easy! Kind of...

 I have had a ton of response to the Industrial Farm Table  that I did. Mostly I have has people asking how I did the top. Its actually 3- 2X12s Douglas Fir. Then after attaching it to the base I stained it with Dark Mahoganey stain, and quickly wiped it off. Then I sanded it, and sanded it, and sanded it. I went through 8 sheets of sand paper on my belt sander! I did sand it close to 8 times. Then I used steel wool and went over the whole thing to take out the gunk in the grooves. Then I just coated it with Polyurethane. And thats it! It was very labor intensive and my arms hurt really bad! Haha!

I think it turned out amazing! I love I did it myself and I love it even more because of that!

Industrial Farm Table

I saw a tutorial for this table at Frugal Farmhouse Design so I decided to do one of my own.

I actually have two of them, one was my first and I didnt like the way it turned out, it was too pink. My second one is a little bit longer and more rustic on top.

I have to admit it was super easy, but the labor on the top to get the finish I wanted was way more intense. 

Check it out and see what you think.
This was my first one. The top turned out way too light for me.

2nd table

I love the way this top turned out. I love the dark and light contrast, it looks like barnwood with a shiny coat of poly on it.

Really cool!

Now I am on the hunt for 2 rugs. One for the living room and here in the dining room. I am thinking sisal. Tell me what you think!
