{ Day ONE of setting up a Designer Room }

This week I'll guide you through how we set up a designer room.
We start with plywood walls. The room is 20' x 12".

A custom floor was made by Jay Chaikin from J.C. Woodworking and the Nat Geo salvage reality show, Abandon.

I'm done.
Kidding, lot's more to do, but is this floor great or what?

A proud Jay.

The last thing we did on day one was this black wall.

Here is the original design board of the room. Some things have been changed, altered or edited since this was created.

If you just can't wait 'til tomorrow's post, follow me here throughout the day.

If you'd like to experience this room in person, it will be unveiled Saturday, Feb. 2 at 10 am at
