before and after

before & after: lori’s painted floor

by Grace Bonney

i’m a sucker for painted floors, so this project from lori dunbar of fin and roe and marzipan inc is right up my alley. lori completed changed the floors by ripping up old carpet (and 5 other layers of flooring!) and exposing the original (albeit rather worn) wooden floors of her home. then lori designed a stencil on foam core and used it to create this bright white pattern on top of her newly painted sunshine yellow floors. and the best part? lori shares her how-to right here! thanks lori! and thanks to jan for the tip!

[have a before & after you’d like to share on d*s? just shoot me an email right here with your pictures]
