where has the time gone…

Color me embarrassed…I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 months since I posted!!  I wish I could say I have been up to so much but that would be a big fat  lie…

I do have a hell of a makeover for you all today…

This is my entry…for 8 years this floor has made me very angry…it’s hideous and although I would LOVE to have a marble tile laid in a  herringbone pattern, that just ain’t gonna happen..

The shape of the tile doesn’t bother me…but the color does

We’d tossed around the idea of painting it years back but everything I read required a hazmat suit and tenting the house…

I took a chance this time and decided to use good old oil base paint…she’s never done me wrong so what did I have to lose…

I started with a pattern that I thought would look old world Moroccan…

Unfortunately it turned out more cow than Moroccan, not my intention…

So, I regrouped…

and behold the fabulousness…

Now that’s some good looking shit…

I love it against the green…I kept the grout white so it would still look tiled and not painted…

I’m thinking it needs a rug, but for now I’m just enjoying the loveliness…
