|My first update of the bathroom..changing from 90's green to this with stencils|
As I stated a year ago, our rental residence came with some obstacles...the challenge, make it a home without killing the bank account. Now the bank account is zero...due to lack employment...it means continuing to do it creatively.
I love taking blogging pictures which allows me to show the beauty while hiding the ugly...even putting on make-up can do that. So when I showed off my 1/2 bath re-do, I just didn't show you the ugly. Now for the truth to be seen.
Yes, that is the floor...and yes, my master bathroom looks as bad. I tried to cover it up with a rug and even held my head up as I walked in so my eyes wouldn't catch sight of it............the ugly floor.
But as another blogger posted one time...there is just time to Yak the thing and getting it out of your way. For me that means.............GRAB PAINT!!! All my supplies were left over from other projects............so this re-do would also be free!!
I first sanded the top of the surface of the floor to remove what little seal was left. I then took mineral spirits to wipe off all grit and again make the surface ready to hold paint.
There were two colors of paint in the garage..neither good by themselves for the floor...so I mixed them to make my base coat. I rolled the base coat on the floor three times...leaving hours and one over night to dry.
I grabbed the same stencil I had used on the walls....even the same paint and stenciled a floor medallion.
After the floor was left to cure over night I began three coats of clear statin sealer.
My NEW Floor.....and now you know the whole story...all the ugly was revealed....and restored to a new beauty.
Yes there is a spiritual lesson there....mine came through this scripture "We have renounced the hidden things of shame...." II Corn. 4:2.
Now you are welcome to come use my 1/2 bath and I won't hide from embarrassed....the ugly has been covered.
