How To Paint Your Floors White.. Holy Amazing.

I NEED these white floors! Obsessed! I first heard of this idea a couple of months ago on the Nate Burkus Show. I was basically glued to the TV.  There is just something about white, I  cannot get enough of it. I’m pretty much drooling over this living room.

Painting our floors won’t be happening for awhile, since we plan to rent this place for a couple more years. Once we buy a house, I will be all over this. I guess I will just have to dream for now! Painting your floors white is probably the easiest way to add instant chic to your home. Well maybe not easy but you know what I mean.  Here is a really good extremely detailed tutorial I found over at Door 16.

Someone please do this! I can at least live vicariously through one of you. We would love to hear how it goes and see your before & after photos too!

As you can see white painted wood floors go with any decor. Shabby chic, modern chic, vintage, rustic, whatever you like.

It’s wedding time! Only 2.5 months away

So I’ll admit, I’ve been a little off my game with the blogging :/ The truth is I haven’t had a whole lot of extra time + the wedding is so intensely on my mind that I don’t feel inspired to write about anything else. SO I have decided to just embrace it. From now until July 15th you will be hearing a lot more about the wedding. There are still so many decisions to be made.. and I figure, why not share my thoughts and get your opinions.  Plus my BFF/Maid of Honer is probably getting a little sick of me asking her opinion on every little detail!

First things first: the  BM’s outfits. Now this is tricky because I am really particular on what I want the overall look to be. First & foremost, I want my girls to look hot. I’m envisioning something completely different than the traditional bridesmaid looks we have all seen in the past. I want different textures &  colors that all go together. I’m thinking romantic-chic-glam.  The wedding colors are blush/peach tones, gold, silver, creams. This look  is sort of what picturing in my head:

And of course some sassy shoes. Maybe hot pink ? We will have to see though.  Thoughts on the BM dresses?

PS. If you are looking for a DIY home decor fix, my BFF has an incredible blog all about fixing up their home. She has beyond amazing taste & is obsessed with decorating. I swear every weekend she shows me some new crazy amazing project her & her hubby did together. Check it out http://www.346Living.com
