Last Days on a Messy Floor

We've been living on this funky floor in our bedroom for three years, but this is the week it gets pretty. What you see in the picture is the fruits of my having chemically stripped a very pale green latex off a medium green oil-based coat over a dark brown oil-based coat. Too much history!

Monday (I hope!) our helper is coming first to sand, then to put all things to rights--at least on my bedroom floor.

You know Anna, if you close one eye and squint you'll see that what you actually have is a patchwork floor. It's all in the eyes of the beholder. :)

Three years? You make me feel a lot better. We have places in our house which seem like they will never get worked on. I really do feel a lot better! :D

That floor has a lot of patina. Are you sure you want to fix it? Can't wait to see what your finished floor looks like!

Thank you for sharing this Anna. Your blog is so beautiful and your home looks so calm, lovely and well-ordered, it's actually just as inspiring to know that it's not perfect! Though I must say that even your 'messy' floor has an abstract expressionist beauty.
