Why? Just Tell Me Why.

What could possess someone to cover this up with linoleum??
It's not a perfect job. We need to scrub it, buff it, or something, but who in their right mind could cover this beauty?? I don't care if it does feel cold under your feet - put on some darn socks for crying out loud!!
My husband's answer as to why someone would do that was something like, "Well, if you were drunk this would really make you dizzy!"

I did say that I thought the first layer looked like it was from the sixties or seventies, so maybe they were tripping out on something...

That looks fantastic! I often wonder what people are thinking when they do home repairs. It's probably more accurate that they aren't thinking! lol

Isn't it crazy the stuff people cover up? I love the tile you uncovered.
Thanks for your comment over at The Nesters!

I LOVE this floor! Gorgeous! And men are always concerned with the "dizzy factor" probably b/c they spend so much time in it! LOL

Thanks for visiting my PINK blog from SITS. Looks like you have three cuties too. Let's keep in touch :-)

I am amazed that you can do so much with one chicken. When it comes to food I'm a goof. You've got my wheels turnin though. I'll be picking up a whole chicken this weekend. I'm going to see if I can do the same.

THANKS!

Heh. I feel your pain. We have a similar pattern but about 8x as large in our bathroom. Coupled with dusky rose tiles in the shower and on the walls. It's loooooverly!

Thanks so much for stoppping by my blog today. The SITS feature was so much fun, and I really appreciate all the wonderful comments. I hope you'll come back to visit again soon!

Marble floors covered? Craziness! Do you know when the original floor was installed?
