The Floor. Podłoga.

I think I am a person who bumps on ideas very suddenly. This floor was no exception. Once I wanted it to be bleached, once dark and shiny, once brown, once black or white.
And suddenly I though of a patterned floor. Not a patterned tile, but patterned wooden floor.I used a decorative punch as a template. I cut out the pattern on a piece of a paper and put it on the floor's board, then painted the holes. In two colours.



Then I wanted the look of an used, a bit dirty floor. So I aged it here and there.;)



Here is a close up on pattern.



And first trial in my new toy.;)




Myślę, że jestem osobą wpadającą na pomysły dość nagle. Ta podłoga nie była wyjątkiem. Raz miała być wybielona, raz ciemna i lśniąca, raz brązowa, raz czarna, albo biała. I nagle pomyślałam, że chcę mieć na niej wzory. Nie kafle we wzory, ale właśnie drewnianą, malowaną podłogę. W tym celu wykorzystałam ozdobny dziurkacz. Wycięłam nim wzór na kartce papieru, przyłożyłam na deseczki i zamalowałam dziury. W dwóch kolorach. Chciałam jeszcze, żeby podłoga wyglądała na starą i zużytą, więc ją trochę postarzyłam. Na zdjęciach widać wzór w zbliżeniu i podłogę w trakcie pierwszej przymiarki w latarni.

Piękna ta podłoga. Kiedyś widziałam taki malowany sufit u fryzjera - drewniane stropy były pokryte zielonym bluszczem. Zrobił na mnie ogromne wrażenie :) Aleś wymyśliła z tym dziurkaczem :) Pozdrawiam

Fajny pomysł, nie? ;D Tylko lepszy do malowania wzoru jest jakiś grubszy papier albo tekturka, bo zwykły szybko namaka i może się przerwać.
Dzięki Olu!:)

What an unusual, extraordinary and spectacular floor - and it looks gorgeous! It was really worth all the effort you've put to it (or am I too subjective? I can't stand stencils... never liked that technique and never will... LOL) Please don't let us wait too long how this will continue!

Hugs
Birgit

Léa said...

Often happens to change his mind in progress because they are the miniatures that decide what they want, ultimately.
Your floor is very original, just like the feel of your blog (music, color and style of your creations ...)… <3

PAKY said...

A floor with an original design! addition, the aging has been very well! Congratulations! hugs

The Old Maid said...

Welcome Lea! It is so nice to see you here!:)
Thank you! Yes, you are right: the miniatures are things that like to decide how they want to look like.:)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much Paky! Happy you like it!:)
Hugs

Giac said...

Wow,
What a wonderful idea and you did a great job of it. That looks just stunning.
Great work!
Big hug,

Sans! said...

Another roombox already?? Wow! Did you cut out the pattern and stick them on the floor? The pattern looked embossed! But I read that you painted the holes? Because if you cut the pattern and then stuck them on the board, you must be way up there on the fanatical scale! LOL !

I can tell already that this will be a really pretty and unique room! :)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Giac! Happy ypu like it!:)
Hugs back to you:)

The Old Maid said...

I don't know Sam, seems to me it is much easier for me just to dress up a doll these days instead of making the whole roombox so it will probably last for ever.;)
No, I am not THAT patient. I just painted the holes.;D Can't imagine sticking so many little things...LOL!

Flor said...
