{hands on deck}

now that the paperwork is all done (thank goodness), one of the first things b & i will tackle ourselves are the floors (currently a muddy brown stain, courtesy of a previous owner's sweat equity --er perhaps just sweat). and this first photo pretty much sums up how i feel about painting them a gleaming white. jonathan adler has informed me of the brilliance of using marine deck paint, but i'm not sure we are going for the high-gloss and flawless paint job. i rather like a well worn floorboard. makes you feel like you've lived there for years...
