FRIDAY HUMBLE ABODE..COLORFUL THINGS...

SO...
I'm rounding out this week with some pretty and colorful painted floors. I think I'm like most people that see painted floors and say-"oh-that is so cool-but I don't think I could paint over wood like that!" If you have really nice floors-of course not! My brother is one of "those" people that say you should NEVER paint over wooden things in your home (he and his wife restored a charming historic bungalow in midtown Memphis) However, I'm of the opinion that not all wood is created equal! In our house-the wood floors and trim are kinda trashed, therefore painting them becomes an option and I'm open to lots of options! :)

I have begun the painting of our staircase and trim-you can check out what I've done so far HERE and some pretty, inspiring, painted staircases I love HERE..

This post really inspired me. I hate the vinyl flooring in my bathroom and have wood underneath that is in good shape in most areas, but not enough to leave as is. I think I may be tearing up the vinyl this weekend and painting it! Now to figure out what colors to do...

Picking the color is the hardest part for me too! I like EVERYTHING!
