The focus this picture from Remodelista is DIY: High-Style, Low-Cost Party Decor, but our eye went right to the checkerboard “painted” floor…NOT with the usual opaque paint, but with a wash of diluted black and white paint. It stains the wood so its character still shines through: a wonderful solution to jazzing up and inexpensive pine floor.
The image is full of ideas that we love and have featured versions of: washi or masking tape drawings on the wall, and a tablecloth made of two contrasting, frayed-edge cloths…
It’s like a Where’s Waldo for grown-up design-o-philes…cool ideas hidden within the subject at hand.
