The Otomi Reveal

It’s done baby, it’s done! Mr. O’Tomi (get it? hehe) is ready to make his appearance, but first can I tell you how completely ecstatic I am that the project is done? I don’t even care that I love what I did to the room, it’s that we have our room back; we can move around freely, the bed isn’t in front of the bathroom door, we don’t have to walk sideways to get around furniture or that night that me and Hubs tried to sleep on the couch his head at one end and mine at the other…that was awful. I think you get the picture…for the past three weeks it’s been rough.

This is a project that started 7 months ago, one month after we adopted our sweet little pup when we realized she loved nothing more than to lounge on soft fluffy surfaces (I think she would get along quite well with Ashley’s pup from 3 Little Greenwoods), so we ripped out the carpet in our bedroom right before Christmas. I waited around until I knew what to do. It was love at first sight when I saw this picture at Lovely Indeed except I chose an Otomi pattern. But, I’m done, I’ll be quiet…let’s do this…the Otomi reveal:

Two and half cans of Annie Sloan’s Old White, two cans of French Linen, this stencil and almost two jugs of lacquer later it’s done. But, you know it wasn’t that simple. I started by hand stippling each panel which took half an hour each…12 panels later I decided to try rolling the paint. The brush was overkill. I finished the rest of the panels in a few hours as opposed to of a couple of weeks worth of hours.

The “flooring” makes the room appear larger and must I say it’s very Anthro.

And here’s a sneak peek of the new vanity that finally made it’s appearance.

      Thank you Dorothy! Well she is disappointed that it’s not fluffy, but it doesn’t bother her either…you know how pups can be about new flooring? Hehe She is glad that I am ok about bringing her little bed in though now that I can clean the floor. :D

    Your floor is so lovely and I can see how it would make your room look larger. There is another floor on a nameless blog that took my heart. Someday I would like to try this…but not at my home…maybe in the rental house we own.
