TOH magazine, painted bathroom floor

Post by Vaso7 »

Did you see the painted bathroom floor in the last issue of TOH?

I really like it! I am going around the house to see if I have a floor that I could paint!

Hey I love the painted floor. I may do that treatment myself. It is a very victorian thing
to do.

I liked it too and was surprised... I don't mean to hijack the thread, but does anybody else think that TOH has lost something over the last couple years? Some projects they've been featuring look really cheap or cheesy. I feel like I'm reading Family Handyman meets Dog Fancy! What's with all the pet projects? A dog obstacle course for your backyard?! Really?
Don't get me wrong, I still subscribe to it and find inspiration and useful information, but gee whiz.

I don't really have much use for TOH. My mother subscribed to it for a long time, but I don't really consider gutting a house to the studs and replacing everything in sight in the name of "modern conveniences" complete with moving walls around and building massive additions to be restoration. jmho

^^^^what he said. That's why I'm not renewing my subscription this year.

The bathroom floor looks pretty cool painted. Flipping it upside down (without hijacking this thread..) I'm drooling over this ceiling treatment for our dining room...

Where can I find this project?!

Seriously. I'm a dog nut. :)

Although I agree that TOH may not be the appropriate place to be publishing such info...

Actually, I am *dying* to paint/stencil/tin/wallpaper (not necessary all together) my kitchen ceiling but nobody in the household wants to help and I am somehow hesitant to take it completely upon me. I thought of hiring some help but I need all the money I can get to change the darn kitchen counter..... Oh well....

I know, right?!!

My mom (!) gifted us a two year subscription which is nice, but I get most excited with the Old House Interiors and Old House Journal subscriptions.
