In January, I posted a blog titled “Mood Boards” and talked about the “Happy Hour” room we are working on.
The image left (from Pinterest) was one of the inspirations from my mood board for the floor.
The creation of the painted “mosaic tile” floor has begun with the help of many…one designing a stencil to fit the space perfectly, another cutting the template from a thin sheet of steel (photo left), another laying out the pattern on the patio, bravely starting the painting and I’m working on finishing it.
It’s taken longer than I had thought. The weather has hampered the process…either too hot, cold, rainy or windy. Also, this area is directly below the elm tree, which has often dropped seeds and debris right in the paint tray!
Below are photos of the progress so far. The patio is not level and has many cracks, therefore, the “grout” lines are not lining up perfectly, conveniently adding to the vintage charm of a Paris bistro I hope to achieve.
Soon the room will come together. Then comes the fun part of creating tasty cocktails …
