snow white floors

The floors are done--just in time for Christmas--and I could not be happier! They turned out beautifully. We moved the furniture back into the living room this weekend and I love how everything pops and looks totally different with the floor all white and shiny.








The red vinyl and chrome chair we found several months ago at Goodwill for $5.00 looks terrific against the white floor. And as you can see, Princess Lucy requires special bedding to lift her a few inches off the hard floor.





The house was built in 1962, so it didn't have neat old wooden plank floors--just plywood underneath carpeting. After he did the (arduous) work of scraping up the rug glue, Andy primed and painted the plywood. I love how it turned out, especially where there are imperfections.





The rolling drinks cart will perform much better on the painted floors, too. Cheers!

  4. OMG it looks FAB. I dream of having white floors, but muddy country life and dogs make it virtually impossible.

  11. oh em gee! that is a gorgeous and
    fantastic room. I've painted many a plywood floor...and I love the imperfections...it's so worry-free. I feel sorry for people who have to live like they are made of glass in glass houses with no Windex ...;-(
