Paint it white

NZ House & Garden - - HOMES -

White painted floors were con­sid­ered un­usual 10 or so years ago when Kiri made her bold de­ci­sion. She’d al­ready sanded the mataī once (and had them polyurethaned) when the fam­ily first moved into the house in the mid 1990s. They had so much borer that sanding them again wasn’t an op­tion but James took a lit­tle con­vinc­ing. “Be­fore we moved our fur­ni­ture in, the house looked re­ally white and James thought we’d made a ter­ri­ble mis­take.” But all was fine when colour was added back in with fur­ni­ture and art­work. The cou­ple used Re­sene Side­walk paint that ex­actly matches the Re­sene ‘Soap­stone’ walls.
