One, two, three, floor..
The study is need of a serious makeover and has been for some time – it’s been a kitchen, a nursery and now a dumping room, though not in the Australian sense. But there’s only a limited budget in the pot, which challenges the learnt mantra of do it once, do it well.
But it’s an interesting dilemma – does cheap cheapen? Or does it actually require greater planning, imagination and inventiveness? I would plump for the latter everytime.
Except the carpet in the room desperately needs replacing. Natural sissal would my covering of choice, topped with a vintage rug like in the first picture. Sigh. Just not possible.
So it has to be painted floorboards – black? white? or maybe like this – painted the same colour as the walls..

As for the rug…the one at present is a rather sad generic black and white number from Ikea. But what if one could dye it? Now that could be fun…watch this space…

Painted floors could be interesting, not cheap. Take your time – we know you are creative. XO
Thank you lovely lady xxx
I love the painted floors. I think they look so cool. I guess my question is how do they hold up?
I think that’s why I’ve never tried..we have lots of varnished floorboards but I have a feeling (been over ten years since I’ve seen floor below) that it’s a mismatch of woods hence the need to paint. Hoping the rug will cover the main walk way….fingers crossed! xxx
