i spent the day running around like a maniac, and arrived back home about 7:30pm.
i had this brilliant idea that i'd just go down and tape the floor out...even though i was supposed to wait till tomorrow (to give the base coat more time to dry).
tape the floor out.
that was the plan...
so i taped it this way...
then that way...
then i had another brilliant idea that i would start painting it.
i really think those varnish and stain fumes did something to my head...
so i started painting it...
(i didn't finish the whole floor..just a few rows...)
(please pretend that my baseboards are there. a little wider than the moulding around the door...same color though)
so now i have a dilemma.
i really think just a small bit of a rust-color here and there on the floor would make it look SO much better...
and this is where i need your help, please, because like i said, i believe there is something wrong with my brain...
here are my thoughts and in no particular order.
•it would look SO much better with a lil' rust-color
•BUT it's a BASEMENT floor.
•AND a STUDIO floor, even.
•so it is going to get destroyed here and there
•and there will be furniture almost everywhere (that will be covering the floor)
•and i'm mainly the only person who is going to be in this room ever.
•and it's going to make the floor take a lot longer to finish than it already will without the rust-color
•so should i bother?
if i were in my right mind, i would probably say no...
no, susan. don't bother. get your studio done and get back to work! nobody is ever going to notice the stupid rust color anyway...
but my totally sleep deprived, fume distorted brain says: SUSAN! get up early and run to home depot and get that rust color first thing! just do it! why not?
please help me and tell me that i don't need the rust color...even if you don't really mean it.
please be totally honest and tell me what you really think.
i can take it.
really, i can...
