About two months ago, I bought paint for my downstairs rooms, which I had always imagined being a little apartment for me, since I live with my Ma.
First off, I need a place dedicated to my books, AKA a library. Really, I have that many books. I should probably stay away from places that sell them second-hand because I don’t need any more even if they’re a dollar each.
Secondly, it would be nice to enjoy a place that’s cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
It has been too humid to undertake any projects, but today, I finally cracked open the paint and stain.
I plan to paint all or most of the downstairs a robin’s egg blue, then stain the floor a dark brown to hide all the uglies.
Then I’m going to paint most of my furniture white.
I love the beach look, so there’s going to be some nautical stuff going on, as well as an overall rustic look. The rustic look is because I can’t afford new flooring or any kind of supplies beyond paint.
I hope few will notice the “flooring” is actually subfloor stained walnut.
Here’s my progress for today.
The floor is going to cost about $15, though I may decide to use Varathane. However, I’m psyched about the look despite the toxic smell which has overtaken the house. And yard.
It really stinks.
And really stains your hands.
