Art Beneath Your Feet

While looking for ideas for a friend who wants to paint her floors, I came across some amazing ideas. I thought I would share them with you.

love that yellow one...they're all pretty great though. One question/issue I have is how they keep the floors looking new? I have a painted hardwood floor in my bathroom. It's been about 2 years, and all the cracks in the floor show/wore off etc. I think maybe more coats/better sealer? Perhaps it's because our one and only bathroom is a high traffic area, and then, with the moisture etc. ? Oh well. It will be tile someday anyway when we redo it!


Love the one that you said was your favorite. I guess with floors, it's better not to go for a "perfect" look since, ummm, it gets walked on. We also had trouble with Laney's painted nursery floor peeling up in our white house. maybe more sealer was needed.

I think you have to use an oil-based poly on top.

Awesome post! I can't decide which is my favorite, they're all so great. We have horrible, horrible vinyl in our kitchen, and I would so love to paint. But am afraid it would wear right off.
