Yes! There's a new floor on it's way for the living room!
I've been inspired. . .and it's a 'have to' case. . .

I know I've teased you for a long time--probably two years. . .
but. . .it's been hard giving up our vintage floor. . .I love the patina of the wood. . .
something you can't duplicate with new materials.
This past week has proven to me that no matter how painful. . .
the floor must be covered with a new one.

Some of you will gasp at the thought of covering up the natural glow of our wood floors, especially with black. . .Some of you might cheer. . . Whatever your persuasion, I hope you'll give it a chance. . .just wait and see. . .It's a very bold move. . .but in the end I think it will be stunning. . .Remember that we have a black and white checkerboard floor in our kitchen and other touches of black there, too. . .This will tie the house together. . .
I had to think about it for a day or two. . .Checked out Pinterest. . .I decided to go for it.
The new flooring is wood. . .already painted black and sealed. . .I could tell that I was being bold with the choice because the owner was really glad to get rid of it. . .Did I tell you the deal he made? . . .88 cents per square foot! . . .Huh?. . .I'm serious. . .and that was AFTER my decision to buy it.

At that price, we bought enough for the bedroom, too. . .the one off the living room. . .
making it an unbroken flow from one room to the other. . . .
We have started in that bedroom since it gets the north wind. . .The weatherman is bringing us some very cold and windy weather this week. . .Then we'll move to the living room. . .Honestly, I can hardly wait to finish so that I can work some decorating magic. . .Most of the black floors I've seen are in a contemporary setting. . .but you know I'll be decorating in FARMHOUSE style. . .I'll keep you posted how things go. . .Wish us luck!. . .The house is such a mess that I'm hoping soon it will be. . .
