I’m back from Haven. I’m tired. My eyes are blurry. My inbox is full. I was so busy that I only took a few pictures and didn’t share as much on my blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. as I wanted. I had an amazing time, though, and it was all worth it. I’ll share more about it when I’ve had a little time to recover. Whew!
Tonight, I thought I would share an idea that’s been bugging me. It popped up a few weeks ago and won’t go away.
I refinished my floors about four years ago. It was a tough and rather ridiculous process, but the results were beautiful.
Over the years, though, my business has been tough on my floors. It took me a while to figure out that I needed to put felt pads on every single piece of furniture that comes into my house and it shows.
See the floors? Those are all of the scratches and dings and blemishes and a little plaint. I actually have to Photoshop my floors, so they don’t look totally terrible. So, what can I do? Well, I’m not refinishing my floors again. Can you guess what I’m thinking?
Yeah, you know me too well… paint. Of course. I’m thinking something checkered…
I haven’t even mentioned this to my husband, so who knows if it’ll actually happen, but I can’t shake the idea. The main thing that’s pushing me towards that idea is something I read at The Nesting Place. When BHG came to photograph her home, one of the ladies on the crew said it’s hard to find people who will take risks in their home. I definitely take more risks in the pieces I sell than in my home.
Maybe I should get a little risky.
What would you do?
(I found the last two pictures on several sites, so I’m not sure of the original source. Please share if you know, so I can link to it. Thanks!)
