I thought I’d give you a little floor update today (this may excite me more than you!). When I decided to do my hallway makeover (t’s going to be ready so soon – I will explain to you then why it has taken so long) it quickly became apparent that I needed a new floor covering as the fresh paint made the carpet look awful,which is not helped by having a very muddy dog. So, I wrote a post about how I chose a new floor and I finally decided, after getting a quote of £3500 for a beautiful oak floor, that I needed to go cheap as my nice salary will no longer exist soon.
We pulled up the carpet in just the hallway last weekend and found MDF boards. We are going to seal these and use a Farrow and Ball floor paint to paint them white and then invest in some beautiful rugs. This floor will continue into the kitchen and sitting room, which I hope will give the flat a more modern feel, as beige carpet never seemed quite right with our white walls and huge windows. Anyhoo, I want to share my inspiration with you and then I promise to get it done soon and share how we did it…
Have a wonderful, sunny Sunday (definitely not a day for painting floors!).
