The chandeliers are for my kitchen and hallway...when we actually have walls again :)









  1. [...] Checked floor! Very fun and vintage. I had already contemplated the idea of painting our porch floor when we build it. I have also contemplated painting one of the “kid” bedroom floors (I haven’t told My Honeypie yet, all of my ‘awesome’ ideas are sometimes a bit overwhelming)–but painting the kitchen floor didn’t occur to me yet.
