Painting the Office

I talked to Paul this weekend and he agreed that the floors could be painted white. Thank you for your comments in trying to decide if I should or not, in regards to the concerns about the chair rolling and wearing of the paint, I forgot to mention that Paul is going to add a clearcoat protectant, kinda like the clearcoat you put on top of wood to protect it from the chair rolling.

On another note, here is the colors I picked out for the walls and trim, I am afraid to use bright bold colors with the floors being white so I stayed with pastel natural colors. What do you think?



White Painted Floors

When we moved in there was carpet in the entire house except in the kitchen and bathroom. There is hardfloor underneath, which is what I’ve always wanted in my house and even better, it is in great condition so Paul sanded and restained it.We ripped up the carpet and replaced it in the bedroom with a light tan color.  Now that the office is our next project we haven’t had the time to figure out what to do in there yet. We already know we want hardfloor so that our chairs can roll easier. Now the question is white paint? is it a good idea just because it’s popular? I love it, but will Paul?

Office Color Scheme

Here is a feel for what the office is going to look like in the near future. The office had been put on the back burner since we were trying to get the other rooms done first. This is our next big project, I will post photos once we start working.
