Please read the previous post to know I was accused of being... practical. Oh dear. Is that good or bad? I guess this week it was bad. I missed out on 2 pair of (insane in the membrane) killer lamps. Yes, they were THAT good. I can neither confirm nor deny whether or not I saw the natural curiosities octopus the day before Hooper missed out on it.
I do find myself in a bit of a practical dilemma- you see, the carpet upstairs in our house HAS GOT TO GO. I want to replace it with the same wide plank pine wood floors we have downstairs. Only upstairs I want to paint them.... gray.
So light, airy and classic. (the light part def makes them impractical)
I am really liking this dark one and if you know you are going to paintyour floors you can get away with a cheaper grade wood (I know this because we did this in our kitchen). SO here is the dilemma... I have had a painted kitchen floor for 7 years. It was pretty the first time I painted it for a month and then it was pretty the second time I painted it for... a week. It's not the floors fault. It's my fault. We live in our house. If it's raining the kids might roller blade downstairs. ( I hear some of you gasping). We do not always take our shoes off by the door. There are days I need every inch my wedges provide to feel better about the fact that I might be getting a little short for my weight!
See my painted kitchen floor ?
Hmm... looks good...right? Now, it looks like and old porch floor that's seen better days. What's a girl to do. In my head gray floors would be stunning. But, I need to face it, I am not a meticulous housekeeper. Sob, sob... I remember the time I asked y'all if I should have open shelving in my kitchen. A few of my dearest (Hooper included) staged an intervention and talked me down from that delusion. So, I know what you might say... no painted floors upstairs. I will still be happy with the stained pine... anything is better then my petrie dish carpet situation. What do you think? Should I paint? Shoot it to me straight, I can take it... maybe.
