our kitchen floor

I don't have great love for our kitchen. It's old, the formica bench is warn and the cupboards and drawers don't shut properly. While I might reeeeeally dislike it, I also believe that we should appreciate what we have-and I saw in it an opportunity to be creative!

I'm hoping ( everything crossed) that we'll get a new kitchen and floor early next year so this is my chance to have a bit of fun. I chose 3 colours of Resene test pots I liked, a red a turquoise and a mint colour. I drew a rough plan ( that I ended up abandoning) and then painted each colour, one at a time. I didn't bother with masking tape etc- I didn't have enough patience or time for that!

There's a pattern and then there isn't- it was more about making sure colour got on the worst looking floor boards.

I like it , the husband tolerates it and the kids are its biggest fans : )

    1. Hi Miriam : ) They've definately given the kitchen a bit more time. I'll probably miss the colour when we get a new one!
