A painted floor:Yellow and white

When we moved in, we enjoyed the clean off-white high-end wool carpet. It stayed clean for about 3 weeks. The often-used spots are now a horrid gray-brown. Vacuuming is now of no help other than picking up bits.

I’d love to rip up the floors, lay wide-plank floorboards… Might still be able to do it!!!!

And in the study, I’d love to do as Lori did, as per Design*Sponge:

I’d die to have these floors!

Instructions on Lori’s makeover are here. I wonder what are the equivalent of “foam core” boards in Australia!

Check out the ‘before’s:

    Hey, we do have foam core in Australia, at art supply stores like Deans Art or Eckersleys. I use it for model making at Uni all the time!

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
