PAINTED GLORY

 If your budget doesn’t permit refinishing your wood floors paint is one of the quickest most economical options.  They can  freshen up a space and add character and  personality.  While staining and coating wood floors has become the current standard today, painted wood floors were in widespread use throughout the l8th & 19th century in both America and Europe.

  1. I LOVE painted floors. They are more common in Scandinavia. Perhaps because they have a lot of pine flooring? (Pine usually does not take stain evenly due to their sappy knots.) Funny you posted about painted floors as I was thinking of painting the floors in my study a grey blue color. Still thinking about it....

  2. I love some of these ideas. I have always wanted to try painting a pattern on my wood floors.
