Renovations special edition: the floor we chose

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes...

Okay. I'll cut to the chase. Our floors are done. We've gone in to look at them. And walked on them. Which was when the magnitude of what we've done really hit.

As you see, we've gone with cement floors. Bare, grey, cement. It's supposed to be a New York loft thing. But right now, it looks really...Raw. Stark. Plain. I told Fergus, "It's really up to us to get the place looking good now."

And it is. So paints, stencils, murals are all going to be marched in soon. Oh yes, did you hear? We're painting the ceiling. It's supposed to be back- (and neck-) breaking work. But it's all part of the look we're going for.

(Deep breath)

Before I go, here's a picture that we're drawing inspiration from. We'll get there slowly.

You're going to leave your floor this raw? For real or not?!

Btw, the layout in the pic you included is so similar to that of your living room. I loove the bookcase.

Aunty Jeanie: Yes! This is how our floor's really going to be. We'll also be getting rugs in :)

And the bookcase is the best!

Q: Nah, we're not allowed to keep dogs but hopefully we can achieve something similar to the rest of the pic.

I scrolled down after the first picture, and I was like WOWZAH...was about to congratulate you on a job well done when I realised...that's NOT your place....yet!
