My Pink Floor

Hi there, this post is about what my preparation for Christmas has been. I think  I told you we moved to a new house last summer, and I mean completely new… and then the unexpected happened, about a month ago we discovered at water damage under our floor.  Last thursday our wooden floor was completely removed and a temporary one was placed instead. The idea now is to dry the water out using a humidifier that has been installed.

We got this new temporary floor 6 days before Christmas. I was a little disappointed the house was looking half finish for our very first Christmas eve in our new home, so I decided to paint the floor!!

I started saturday evening, I then continued sunday evening and I finally applied the varnish monday morning. As this is just a temporary solution, the work does not look very professional. I have painted one coat of Chalk Paint™ and one coat of Annie Sloan varnish. I put masking tape around the furniture and carpets, so I did not have to move things around, I painted around whatever was standing in the house. I know !! not very professional, but I just had to try.  As for the colour, I chose a mix of Chalk Paint™ Antoinette and Pure.

…..to make the floor a little bid more exciting I used a stencil call Quadrant by The Stencil Library. It comes as a quarter of the pattern and I just had to rotate it to complete the pattern. Really easy to use. By the way these stencil are now available from my website. For the stencil detail I chose Chalk Paint™ Paris Grey.

I just made it on time for Christmas, the guest were impressed not only by the delicious food, but also by our very unique floor! I must say I really enjoyed trying this. I will miss my pink floor which will be removed in about a month.

My kids decorated the tree themselves, first time I allowed this to happen,  this definitely my favorite Christmas tree ever.

That was all, I hope you now feel tempted to try this at home! My boys said to me ”mom, next time you should try blue or green, we don’t like pink” 🙂

Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2014, full of new creations with Chalk Paint™

Keep it simple

  1. very nice and creative. I look forward to buying more paint from you and maybe have a little chat next time. Ohhh I can feel it won’t be long before I come by …even though I don’t have any money 😉… I am already in love and addicted to ASCP. Want to paint my kitchen cabinets and maybe tiles if that is possible and every thing else in my home 😄 See you soon.

    Feliz Navidad to you. “Glædelig jul”.
