Are these floors gorgeous OR WHAT?! And, speaking of gorg, I would die for that kitchen in the first picture. All of it, unless that appliance is a coffee maker...I don't drink coffee, but everything else, including the lettuce...I'll take it. I don't know if I would ever dare paint wood floors, but I love the light and dark alternating wood. I would definitely do that. More accurately, I would pay and/or watch someone else do it.
In other news, check out my guest post today over at Strictly Simple Style where I talk about making your house beautiful on a budget. I realize that, while this topic hasn't been my strong suit as of late (see furniture debacle post), I can, in fact, make some pretty cheap and easy projects! Check it out!
