A Distressed Floor

Its a snowy blustery day today and the whole east coast stayed home, I think. I should make myself useful and post some pictures. 

This staircase leads to an odd little guest room above a garage.

The finish is crackled and scraped, then toned, drybrushed and overglazed to get a soft and consistent antiquing. It took altogether too much struggle to get what we wanted, but in the end everybody was happy with the result. Thanks to Jen Towne for her perseverance in pushing this through.

The trim is also crackled and in the powder room a faux encaustic pattern adds to the effect of the tiled walls.
