I made this rough-sawn, "wood" beam!



I spent two (2) weeks redecorating our bedroom from top to almost bottom.  One of my favorite project results from that monster project was creating and implementing a faux finish for the drywall covered beam that ran though the room.  



I used supplies & tools from my decorative painter days that I moved with us to Montana and a test quart of paint to make up a rough-sawn faux bois to match the actual exposed wood beam in our living and dining room.  As you can see, I also repainted the ceiling a light, warm grey and the walls a deep, dark purple.



I'll be posting about the duvet set I sewed in a few minutes and will try to remember to come back and post a link in this spot.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422817.0#axzz2Qs5bxdyl

The full details of the redecoration of our bedroom are also on my blog: http://suddenlytaxidermy.blogspot.com/2013/04/purple-bedroom-majesty.html
