See us in the March COUNTRY LIVING~

It's real. It's here. Thank you Country Living!!
How exciting, from their very first contact - to now, I have felt incredibly privileged. That's the way it's been for me since I first 'pinched myself' that I'm here in this great old building, meeting all of you and doing what I love. Come along and experience it all with me here, I'd like that~ TERESA

I just got my Country Living in today and saw the article on you. Wow, what great style you have. Saw so many things I just loved. Hope you'll stop by and visit my blog. Congrats, Theresa

Teresa, I read the article last night and marveled at the fabulousness of your building. I'm glad you received such greatly deserved press for your preservation of a historic property.

See you downtown.

Oh, I wish someone sang to me in French. Sounds precious. Was it absolutely incredible when you finally got your issue?

TERESA said...

Thank you to all of you for the great wishes! I know many of you, but wish I could meet each of you in person~ Watch for more about the apartment renovation in the coming weeks, for sure. A friend told me yesterday that it's too bad there weren't 'before' photos -I'll be sharing photos from that perspective, too. ~TERESA

Briefly saw the article but haven't had a chance to read yet - the photos looked wonderful tho! The only thing they can't convey is the welcoming feeling you get when there in person - you really know how to put folks at ease and feel at home! Congrats my friend! Kris

I just received my copy today and so admire your renovation. I would love to have my shop and business under the same roof since I work constantly anyway! Great job. LOVE the living room.

I opened my copy of Country Living last night to find exactly what I had been looking for yesterday- a painted floor in a living space! I immediately looked you up online and became a follower of your blog. Your home is beautiful! I absolutely love your mix of finishes. I was disappointed that CL didn't include any sources! If you don't mind, I would love to know what color/brand you painted your floor, and how it is holding up. Thanks so much! I will be back often to check out your new posts. Beautiful shop- wish I was closer!

-Amy

Thanks, Amy! Very nice of you to comment, and thanks for joining as a follower~
I like my painted floors, am happy to share color/brand sources~ I think the article states the floors are white, but they are actually a warm gray:(Eddie Bauer HOME Lakeside Cottage Collection, LINEN EB12-2). I don't think floor paint was available in the Eddie Bauer brand, so I color matched with Glidden brand. I used two coats of paint - the bedroom floor is sealed with dark walnut oil-based stain. Floor paint is extremely easy to apply (rolled it on). I'm not a perfectionist when it comes to my painted floors - they hold up extremely well, but do show some natural wear - which I like. If you're looking for a long-lasting 'perfect' finish, I'd recommend checking sources about sealing a painted floor with polyurethane/marine varnish, etc.
Let me know what you do - I'd love to hear about it! Thank you, TERESA
