It has been a while since my last post but I have been busy ‘doing’ and sadly have had little time for ‘recording’! My Hallway has dominated the last month, having pulled up the pink carpet we have spent hours de-nailing and then sanding the floorboards.
I have been debating the practicalities of having a white floor in our hallway ever since I painted the floor boards white in my son’s room. Will it be cold downstairs without carpet, will I be forever cleaning it, how will a painted floor wear in an area of high traffic??? The only way to satisfy myself was to go for it!! White washed floors remind me of holiday homes by the sea and I love the idea of walking into our house and somehow capturing the thought of relaxing by the beach as I step though the front door!! Well, I would say that we have a way to go yet but everything is now white!!!!
I am pleased so far. Still have another coat or two to go before it’s finished and then we’ll see how it performs! I am also planning on re-covering my hallway chair (another project for another day!) with some suitable beach themed fabric and I would like a nice big rug too if I can manage to find one that goes with my picture!
I will of course post some more pictures as we progress. Off to carry on with the painting now!
