My Painted Checkerboard Studio Flooring Is Completed!


Y’all, this was an enormous job, however the painted checkerboard flooring within the studio is lastly completed. This challenge would have been a lot simpler if I may have moved each single factor out of the room and painted your complete flooring on the identical time. However as a result of I had such giant objects like my two large work tables that needed to keep within the room whereas I used to be portray the ground, that meant that I may solely do half of the ground at a time.

After which I obtained off observe with my thought of doing a painted “rug” design on the again entry flooring, which (for my part) ended up wanting horrible. So I needed to sand the again entry flooring to take away the entire paint ridges and begin over.

As a result of I solely sanded sufficient to take away the ridges from the painters tape, and my objective wasn’t to take away each little bit of paint from the ground, I didn’t have to start out on the very starting with primer. I may skip that step and begin with portray your complete flooring grey, after which taping off the white squares and portray these.

So it was truly a comparatively fast and simple redo. And now that I can see it completed, I feel it was positively the best choice to hold the checkerboard design throughout to the again doorways. Right here’s the way it turned out.

Don’t you assume so, too? I like that there’s nothing breaking apart the movement of the design into the again space. I feel it makes the room look bigger and extra cohesive. After all, eliminating that inexperienced on the again entry partitions will even go a good distance in direction of bringing these two areas collectively.

And I’ve to confess that I used to be each shocked and enthusiastic about how near-perfectly centered the design ended up popping out on the ground. I used to be anticipating the design to be a bit off heart, nevertheless it turned out to be virtually completely centered on the again doorways and with the aspect partitions and doorways.

I can’t even let you know how excited I’m to be achieved with this flooring! It’s a bit dusty, and all the pieces within the room must be cleaned, however after some vacuuming and cleansing up, I’ll be prepared to maneuver on to repainting the partitions. I’ve determined to make use of the identical blue on the studio partitions as a substitute of white. However I’m going to have the colour blended at 50% in order that it is going to be a lot lighter than what it’s now. The extra I considered it, the extra I simply can’t see myself liking white partitions. I’ve tried that earlier than, and it didn’t work out.

So I’ll maintain the ceiling the precise blue that it’s now and the partitions would be the identical colour blended at 50%. I’ve additionally chosen a colour for the lavatory self-importance, and I’ve purchased the paint. That may truly be my subsequent challenge since I simply completed a giant challenge, and portray a conceit will give me the almost-immediate satisfaction of a challenge that may be completed in a few hours. Both method, I’m simply so relieved to be completed with the ground!
