Oh how I wish I had a before picture to show you. There is soooo much I would like to do at camp, some will happen, some will not. This one was pretty major, and made such a big difference. When we bought our camp it was heavily decorated in yellow. Yellow everywhere! And sunflowers! It is a small, simple camp, three rooms, two tiny bedrooms and a larger room for living/dining/kitchen, and the sunflowers were more than a little overwhelming. The whole floor was painted bright yellow! Bright! Oh why did I not take a picture?
I painted the whole floor sort of a medium rusty brown, I let it dry, and then painted it over one workable area at a time with dark brown. While it was still wet I dragged a graining tool over it. I still need to draw in some cracks with a thicker permanent marker. In one of the bedrooms I drew them on, but the line came out too thin. I think it looks more like laminate flooring rather than real hard wood, but I can tell you it looks a lot better than bright yellow!
Every time I walk in, I'm surprised by the floor, I always forget that it is finally toned down.Pin It
