I came home early to check on the floor and it looks so amazingly good that I can't even believe that it was hiding underneath that brick red paint with the thick white paint splatters. Finally I can see the room coming together.
I won't reveal my design ideas until a little later, after I've had some time to implement the final decorated room -- and that will require some diligent painting on my part.
It is so smelly in that room right now that it's almost scary. After the finish sets and the second coat is on we can let it air out a little later on in the week.
