First thing on the agenda. The floor. The foundation. The base from which everything will rest upon.
All my life I've wanted to have dark floors. I love the dramatic earthiness of rich, dark wood, but never had a floor space big enough to get away with it. As soon as I saw this space, I knew I was going for it. This studio will definitely have dark floors.
After they sanded it out my best friend and I got down and did the staining and coloring ourselves.
Three days of furious scrubbing, and I got my coffee stain floors--- a beautiful contrast to the white walls, as Erica, who's in the picture on the right commented. (She's the first ever client in this new studio).
