Gee you two have fun and a safe trip! But really don't show us all that good stuff when we can't buy it! Ohh how I would love those rhinestones! I am working on a project they would be perfect!


you know I was just going to ask you how to paint an outside (wood) wall. I knew I'd have to prime it, but I have no idea if "regular" acrylic paints would do the job, or if I'd have to start mixing house paint or something...

love the floor :)


Great floor, love the way the little flowers are added I bet it is amazing in person. Congratulations on your class and it's success~ Hugs From Diane in California


Nice floor! I remember when that mall used to be Traditional House furniture. I used to live just down the street off of Somerset!!


Wow the floor looks so great!! i would love to try this but don't have the artist touch like you do and am afraid it would look like a 3 yr old scribble job!


I love that floor Karla, I thought about painting a cobblestone type walkway on my driveway...but then I looked at the driveway... it seemed really long... and then I thought about my bum knees...uh... aint happenin! but I still love the way it looks.

Thanks for the tips Karla! I just needed them especially the one of the bonding primer. We have a basement with some concrete like floor, which I wanted to paint. I threw a can of paint over it accidently, but that wouldn't hold, you just could peel it off. Now I know why. Good luck with all workshops you are going to teach. Oh I so wish I lived closer by, I would certainly visited one of them, preferably that in your own home. Have a great weekend!


A thousand thank yous for this one! I tried painting my up-north cement porch floor a couple of years ago, based only on the advice of the fellow at the paint store. I'm not sure he'd ever done that before! Needless to say, it didn't stick, but maybe next summer I'll give it another go!

Have fun in TX -- I think you'll have a ball!


Karla, you are a fantastic painter,-that floor is gorgeus, love how you made the flowers grow,between the stones!
And please --next time going to Bets I want to come,lol-
to take a round with you, in all that wonderfull collections.


Hi Karla,

Do you know if it is possible to paint over a tile kitchen floor. This tile is a palamino color and the grout and tile was never sealed, thus a hard floor to clean. There just has to be a way - I've got to persuade my husband! Would love your advice.

Those pansies are beautiful. Are they a picture from Beth's or a photo? I'll bet it is wonderful to go poke around at Beth's. Such treasures I see!



Love the tips and that floor is amazing! So, so pretty. Love looking at those pansies too. I absolutely can't WAIT for spring. It's been a long, cold, crummy winter. Bring on the sun and summer I say! - Cheers, Kathy

Hi Karla......I am still alive and feeling much better. This year has been terrible for me. The only joy I had was coming to your blog. Most times I didn't even feel well enough to leave a comment.
I love the painted floor. You are to talented....I would never think of painting the floor. It looks wonderful!!Laraine


What a pretty post of Beth's treasures~~

I love the floor you did! I just took over a little space in an antique store last month and I am not thrilled with the walls or the floor existing..hmmmm I may need to give this a try!I Guess I need to ask the owner first:)

See you soon!

What fun to "snoop" around Beth's. I love the little sneak peaks she gives to all of us. Most of my friends don't have the "junk" bug, but it's still fun to look around and see how they change things for the seasons.

Love the painted floor!

Have fun in TX!



That concrete floor is amazingly beautiful!! You're such an talented mural painter! Thanks for sharing that beauty /Therese


Wowwww Karla ~
That is just gorgeous!
I also love what you did
with Beth's booth ~



That frog ring caught my eye--my mom would LovE that!
