You are doing WHAT?

As the hardwoods were being beautified, that old linoleum in the bathroom started bothering me even more! So the other night I just started Pulling it up! This is a trick I learned from my mother. When I was younger we had this wallpaper in the playroom that she wanted to get rid of. It kept getting put on the back burner until finally one day, she grabbed a little tag that had come Away from the wall, and began ripping. Needless to say, my dad got on the task really quickly and she had a wallpaper free playroom with a fresh coat of paint!
Now that linoleum is up, what will I do...hummm....

I am a step ahead of you. I have painted the wood floor! Yes, that is right, I painted the bathroom floor! My husband thought I was crazy for this one! But I think I can turn
him around with a great result and just a little cash! I primed the wood floor first,
then painted it a creamy white.

Next comes the creative part!
THen I will let it dry then hit it up with a couple coats of poly!

TAh Dah! This will get us by until
we really tackle this bathroom! How do you think it turned out?

Side note-the shower curtain needed to be larger than normal, so I grabbed some burplap, added a little fringe to dress it up and attached some dark brown hooks! I love the way this turned out! Goes well with the painted floor I think!

Thank you! It was a lot of fun-but it gets dirty easily! Perhaps it would have been better in a darker color!

I think you did a great job! I am currently remodeling a bathroom too (low budget until we have money to do it the way we want) AND I'm painting the floor! It's so neat to see other DIY'er ideas. This is so cute! :)
