so a few of my readers…(aka so really just my family…alright…i will tell the truth…its really just my mom…but she counts…because i do think she and my dad are most faithful fans) have suggested that i am moving way to slowly at the reveal of my house…but compiling all the photos is really time consuming…so i do apologize for the wait…they are coming!!
so with that being said.. i will give a little sneak peak into how the floors progressed…to white!! LOVE. i dont love cleaning them…but i do love looking at them AfteR they have been cleaned…just prior to the kids and dogs taking their first step of the day onto their pristine surface…
which brings to mention…as i know you will ask… (okay so maybe only one of you will think about asking … but i will give an answer to this…because if i was reading…i would like to know the following…)
1. why in the world would you paint your floors white when you have 3 kids, a husband, and 2 large dogs (a pit bull mix and a great dane mix)?
and the second…
2. since you were so senseless in doing so…how in the world do you clean them?
so here are the answers… to them both…
1. PINTEREST. pinterest made me paint my floors white and all the pinners who collectively pin photos of white interiors (which by the way…please take a look…at a few photos i will post….below…notice: NO PEOPLE or LIVING CREATURE of ANY kind is posted in the ALL WHITE interiors.
2. for starters…i have purchased every single promising cleaner that target sells! they do not work on white floors. FYI. and… i have literally crawled around on all fours..well actullay all 3′s…because my 4th was holding a scrub brush…and scrubbed the floor inch by inch (which by the way is how i first achieved a very satisfyingly clean….but i seriously DO nOT have that much time on my hands!! DISCLAIMER… most of the problem is that just after this photo was taken and the second coat applied…we moved in. ”let the paint cure” as suggested by sherwin williams…could not possible happen as we were literally finishing construction, cleaning and moving in (at the same time btw) ….and all within one day of this photo. not to mention…it rained on day two of our move in.
but dont feel sorry for me just yet!
the shark cleans WHITE FLOORS!!! (except for those stains that set in before the paint was fully dry …and at this point..i can only consider those as CHARACTER!) omg. are you familiar with the shark? surprisingly enough my husband had the shark long before we met…and i have never used it…until now. STeAm Clean??? who knew…but i love it … and it is a life saver!!
now when i truly think about whether i would do it all over again…paint the floors white that is…yes!!!! YeS i WOuLd!
a few of my reasons why… as promised above…are shown here below. and notice…now kids, dogs, creatures or humans of any kind in any of the photos…
you can find more white gloriousness on my pinterest board labeled spring miracle.
i love the idea of a blank canvas. and apparently i like for people to think i am crazy. scl
ps…i know you see those awesome LIGHTS…those my husband MADE…but more about that later.
