From Dated Nook to Vintage Office Space

The upstairs room had ample storage, but its cabinetry and painted fir floor were out of sync with the home's early-20th-century style.

We gave the walls a damask look with stencils and paint. On the floor, we sanded and painted a faux area rug, then used a wood-graining tool to make "planks" of distressed white paint over a base of butterscotch. Three coats of polyurethane sealed the surface. The room was part of an upstairs redo that spanned a few summer weeks. Now we've got a space for stashing craft supplies and computer gear that's a pleasure to be in rather than an eyesore.
