We decided to do a gray base for the floor color, then at some point in the future I might stencil a design over it (like I had previously posted)...maybe when I'm not preggos. So we picked out some glossy Valspar Oil Porch & Floor Paint in light gray at Lowe's.
And it turned out pretty well! We (and by "we", I mean Brannon) put two coats on it, and each coat took forever to dry (the beauty of oil-based paints). But we're both happy with the color. It's not completely smooth and free of bumps because we just painted over the plywood that was underneath the carpet. So it's not perfect, but it's perfect for us. My mom found some inexpensive floor rugs at Walmart that had the mint, gray and white colors in it - so we'll use those for now. They make great camping rugs. At some point, we'll probably try to find a runner that looks good to go down the middle, but we haven't fallen in love with one yet.
Not a bad transformation, eh? I'll post before and after pictures soon!
