This is a lovely photo from the holiday issue of Anthropologie.
I decided to paint our forlorn kitchen floor in the studio/shop with the Swedish Folk Art design in the background.
I started out with the pale grey base coat over the linoleum.
I liked the fact that it dried unevenly. Just the way I wanted it!
Let the fun begin!
This is a new style for me so it took a little longer.
I edited the design as well.
I love the results!
Let me tell you that I was SO GLAD when I finished! YAY!
20 hours later.Voila! I started to put the antique finish on as in the picture by mixing paste wax and black and brown paint, but I found it to be too dirty looking for this space, so I decided to
put 2 coats of clear paste wax on it for a nice finish.
Thanks for looking!
