Baked Brie... Yum.

The title entices you, does it not? Well, unfortunately the only baked brie I can offer you today is the beautiful Behr Floor & Porch color my friend B picked for her floor redo. B owns a 1950's house and in one of her rooms it was sporting the original carpet installed back in the 50's. Oh yeah... So she decided to get brave one day and pull the carpeting up, and much to her delirious surprise there were stains galore under the carpet. The bad thing was they ruined the hard wood floors underneath, so B called me and we brainstormed a fix to the problem. To stain or not to stain? That was the question. Actually let's paint it! We would have had to use a dark stain anyways to cover the really dark spots so matching the rest of the floors wasn't an option anyways. Painting knocked a few frustrating steps out of the process and she would be able to lighten the room instead of making it super dark.

So here are some before and after shots. I have to apologize for the crazy dust in the before pictures plus the fact that I couldn't get over there during the day to take the pictures.

On a tight schedule and even tighter budget we really made a great difference in there. I love the color, it's actually a creamy light green but the night pictures make it look buttery. Even though it was hard work, I really enjoyed doing this project and would be very open to doing it again.

If you have a floor issue like this or have considered updating your old wood floors with color, please contact me, I would love to help you out!

Thanks for stopping by and leave a comment on your way out!
