Update Your Vinyl Flooring with Paint

Remember that time I painted the vinyl floors in my bathroom as a frugal way to update floors? 

Well, I'm at it again, only this time it was last minute so the pictures aren't as clear. Nevertheless, you can still get an idea of the drastic change. 

We'd already pulled up the carpet from off of the stairs and painted them brown and white. We intend to redo the foyer floor, but hadn't gotten around to it yet with all of the other projects we're working on.

As you can see, the vinyl is discolored from over ten years of wear and tear. Although there's usually a rug here at the front door, I was just tired of the way the floor looked and decided to paint it for now.

I also needed to repaint the stairs which had been badly chipped and scraped while moving our couches downstairs. After getting everything taped off, I went to work painting. Here's what it looked like after just one coat of paint.

Now, take a look at the rich chocolate color after two coats of paint.


I'm already feeling better about this area at my front door. Even the chipped paint on the stairs has been updated. On a side note, my bathroom floors still look amazing. None of the paint has chiped or peeled. Th only reason that happened on the stairs is because of use moving dragging the heavy couches down them.

When I took these pictures it was late afternoon so there a bit grainy. I'll try and take some updated pictures to share once the foyer is styled. 

You can see what products I used and how I painted the floors in this post.

This weekend we had friends over for dinner and board games. We were in charge of meat and beverages so I picked up some chicken, burgers, hot dogs and 7Up Ten at Kroger. 
To make serving simple, I placed all of the eating utensils in one location on the counter and the food on another section of the counter.

Den Shelf Styling Tour

I had some time this weekend to do some decorating while my husband watched football. 

The first thing I did was bring out my fall decor magazines. 
Looking through seasonal decor magazines, gives me a lot of inspiration.

Inspiration was something I needed since I'd just thrifted a shelf and needed to style it.

I began by putting the warmer weather themed decor magazines closer to the bottom shelf and the cooler weather decor themed magazines closer to the top shelf.

The next thing I did is look around the house to see what I could place on my new shelf.

Starting from the top here's a tour of what I used to decorate.

I like making our morning routine super easy, especially for my kids, but I've noticed they've been skipping breakfast lately.

I think they've grown tired of oatmeal and cold cereal, so this week I'm planning a frozen breakfast menu. The menu is set up so that they can eat at home or have breakfast on the go.

To create their breakfast, I'm using Aunt Jemima frozen waffles as the foundation.
