Front Room Inspiration

My front room remodel is taking much longer than planned!

    ......But isn't that always the case with a Mom of four boys?

I have finally completed the paint job and am absolutely loving it!  It is very sunny and whimsy.....and I am thinking of oh so many ways to accessorize it!

One of the things I am dying to do is to pull up the carpet and paint it!  I could put traditional pergo in there but it would be more thrifty and unique to paint the floor.  I found just the photo the other day that was so inspiring to me that I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO GET IT OUT OF MY MIND!

Just to let you know...our house was built in 1912 and has wood floors in 90% of the house.  They have never been finished as far as I can tell!  So it's going to be risky but I haven't got much to lose since all I would have to give is some time, paint (maybe oops paint.) and topcoat.  Here is the link to the picture that inspires me!
Let me know what you think??

  1. Floor update....after much consideration and examining the floor I have decided the old wood flooring isn't consistent enough through the house to paint it...bummer! We will be installing laminate which I will absolutely LOVE!
