Note: Since this post, I did paint my floors!
Hello turquoise! I mean, it’s already on my kitchen walls, so why not add some to the black floors in the RWTGTD?
If you read this blog often, you know all about the Room Where Things Go To Die. It is a teesny, shoebox-sized room that needs to fulfill many purposes: guest quarters, craft storage, reading room. It is slowly coming along and the one thing that really keeps me from being able to go all out and beautify the damn thing is the floors. The wooden floors. That are painted black. With gray paint streaks and spots decorating them. Fun, huh?
This comprehensive tutorial at Door Sixteen is really making me want to take the plunge to pretty painted floors. Sure, it might be a difficult and time consuming and I may hate myself while I’m painting but the end result is totally worth it.
Now: what color? Keep in mind that the room gets little natural light and is painted a light gray. Oh, and we have a black lab mutt who sheds. A lot.

I could go all out and do some crazy stenciling… but realistically, that’s not in my repertoire, right?
On second thought, this is so gorgeous that maybe it should be in my repertoire. Can you imagine turquoise with a white pattern? Or better, orange? ORANGE.

Gray… how beautiful is this room? How perfect? From the bench in the left-hand corner to the light rug under the table, color me in love. And the floors look pretty damn good, too. (Please go read the post this photo is from here. A beautiful day making home feel like home is described by the author.)
I’m in. Painted floors, I’m ready for you. Who wants to help?
