If you follow me on instagram you would have noticed that over the Easter weekend we did a spot of DIY. It's tradition, no? A long weekend gives a chance to crack on with some jobs. So, this weekend we sanded and painted our bathroom and landing floor dark slate grey.
The floor upstairs was a mix of stained dark wood and white painted floors. Both were done 8 years ago when we moved in. Both were scuffed, and tired looking. In need of a face lift and continuity to make the upstairs space look bigger.
I was initially worried that it would look incredibly dark, there isn't much natural light in our landing, but three coats later the finished floor is wonderful! Smooth, a great colour and perfect (in my eyes). We used Ronseal Floor Paint in Slate Grey. It was easy to apply and covered the floor well. The colour is a true dark grey.
Our bathroom is not finished. Still much painting to be done. We have tongue & groove paneling around the room, I am wanting to paint it a pale grey or perhaps this blue. What do you think? I am also on the hunt for a small kilim or persian rug to use as the bath mat. I love this trend. More images of this trend can be found over on Apartment Therapy.
