No ordinary floor

Ronda works from home as an artist and runs a small B&B.

Her space is a generous 70 square metre studio on the ground floor of their home, which has evolved through many uses including a dentist then converted to bedrooms and living space.

The carpet was not a practical floor covering so Ronda removed it and painted the floor instead. But this is no normal painted floor, it's a work of art with painted flagstones and a dungeon door.

Painted studio floor

Working with no plan Ronda started in the hall and worked her way using flaws in the cement to her advantage. Painting cracks people think are so real they bend down to check. Ronda used base colours of Resene Champagne, Resene Wheatfield and Resene Coral wanting it to have a 'warm' base. For the tints she used Resene Flash Point, Resene Nero, Resene Captain Cook and Resene Mexican Red with Resene Green House for the dungeon door, working in layers for depth.

As such a labour of love, it felt like Ronda needed to sign it. She thought chiselling her name into the floor (with a paintbrush) was the best solution and brings with it a touch of humour.

Ronda used Resene Lumbersider for the whole project. The nature of the floor will make it easy to paint any areas showing wear in the future. It's turned out so well it's now a show piece.


Thanks to Ronda.
