Office Build



We built an office in our bonus room above our garage. I did shiplap floors, faux brick panels with a German Schmear technique, metal effects walls, and multiple furniture pieces. I only used Ryobi tools for the project and lots of patience, blood, sweat and a few tears. I love how the room is industrial with a rustic edge that brings a cozy feeling.

  • This is unbelievable. Every detail is perfect for the space- the floors, the textures you chose for the walls, the furniture color- all of it goes together in an awesome way. The exposed rafters are beautiful too- and that ceiling! You used Metal Effects to get that aged copper look?

    • Awww thanks Ryobi Nation!! I am humbled by your kind words! I used Modern Masters Metal Effects to get the aged copper look. I used both the rust activator & a little of the blue & a lot of the green patina activator.
