don't get too excited




so, here they are..painted floors. i can't seem to capture the warmth of the color with my camera. i will tell you that in person this color really has a warm, almost mushroom hue to it. you will just have to come and see it for yourself.

and the big bummer is the state of california has a ban (lead content) on lacquer and oil based paints. of course i wanted high gloss to reflect even more light, but this will have to do for now...until i get to oregon or canada to smuggle some in :) or maybe i could score some favors/trades?

now the guilt sets in as i really want to be better at protecting the earth and environment. every little bit helps and if i need to use a latex based paint to do my part, well so be it. just hope the come out with high gloss, environment friendly sooner than later.

anyway, sorry there is not more life in the photo's....

I hear oil base paint makes a fabulous house warming gift! Gloss or no gloss, the floors look amazing, which makes the room look even more amazing...be very-very proud!
