Painted hardwood floors... the big project!

Well, we finally took the plunge this weekend...

We began phase one of painting our first floor hardwood flooring.  As I type this, the kitchen and my studio are done and drying!!  Yay!  I hope to have some photos next week, after everything is dry and I can put the rooms back together :)

The plan is to extend the pale grey color we used on the dining room floor 2 years ago {seen above} to the entire first floor!  Everything will be complete in about 2 weeks, when we finish up with the foyer, powder room and family room.

I know, I know, it's a big decision to paint over hardwood floors...and believe me, I have heard the opinions of those opposed to painting over hardwood!  But I have been dreaming of doing this for a few years now!  I have not liked how my oak floors have really started to turn more orange with each year that passes.  More than that though, I just truly love the look of painted floors and am giddy with excitement to be doing this!!  Thank you to my beloved husband for all of his hard work and cooperation.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!!
