Project Day: Studio Floor Finished






Remember the studio floor? OK, here is a first look at the space. Finished! The main feature was the stencil flooring. I hand painted some stencil shapes to try and create an illusion there was a rug on the floor. The stencil cost about $20 and I used some left over paint. It took awhile but worth it.
I didn't use lines or a guide, just my eye and the square edge of the stencil (line it up each time). I painted them across the floor until I thought it looked right. Some of them are a little wonky, but that's how I like things anyway.
I hung the hanky bunting up this morning. Can you see it? So sweet.
Anyone can do this. It doesn't cost much to change the look of a space.
Have a great weekend everyone.
