Shabby Coast Cottage Painted Floor

I am gearing up to have my studio ready soon!

This week I have been working on painting the side room…

first it needed a fresh coat of white paint on the ceiling, walls and floor!

All the wood in the cottage is Heart Pine and is almost 100 years old!

 Then I knew that I wanted to do something fun and different on the floors…

after searching the web for inspiration, I came across a fabulous blog – Jones Design Company and she has a tutorial on painting a design on a wall.  I loved it and thought that it would look great on the floor!

So I enlarged the template that she provides to  16 inches and cut it out of cardboard.

and then i spent the next 2 days on the floor!

I primed the floor lightly so that the grain would still show through and used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Gray for the design…

 I seriously would have lost my mind with painting a smaller design on walls! Kudos to anyone that can do that!

 After I got it painted, I sanded lightly in some spots and then waxed with a floor wax!

I am hoping that it will age naturally and distress beautifully!

and now a little glimpse into the disaster that this room was just a few months ago…

It was like a Horders Episode…. very scarrrryyyyy…….

And now, The room all Painted and Happy!!

I can’t wait to get the other rooms done and get all my supplies in there to start creating fabulous things!
