I spent some time this week out in the studio distressing my already somewhat distressed plank wall even more. Truth be told, I was less then thrilled with it, but I couldn’t really put my finger on why. I just knew I needed to tone it down some. It felt like too much, for lack of a better way to describe it.
My husband spent an evening hanging out with the little guy while I spent three or so hours out here with a power sander. Yep, I sanded each and every one of these planks. I just started at the top and worked my way top to bottom, left to right.
If you missed the original post, you can learn more about our distressed plank wall. If you’re interested in seeing what it looks like now, keep reading.
It’s hard to believe how much of a difference it made. It’s so much easier on the eyes now that everything blends together more. It definitely has a more industrial feel to it, which is awesome considering the look I’m going for in here.
You can see just how much I distressed some of these planks. I really wanted that reclaimed wood look. It’s crazy to think about how many hours I have in to this project at this point. Yep, I’m ambitious. Either that, or out of my mind. Lol…
