Painted Wood Floors

Alright, lets talk about wooden floors. For the past 3 years I have lives in an awesome apartment.... that is completely carpeted. Like wall to wall, everywhere but the kitchen basically. And although I have nothing against the carpet, I am definitely excited for the day when I get to have some wood floors of my very own. A little part of me wants to rip some of the carpet up and see what kind of flooring we have going on underneath... but I am a good renter so I won't.

Anyway, enough about my apartment... time to talk about wood floors... painted wood floors that is.

You dont have to have the most perfect wood floors to still have a gorgeous floor. Grab a paint brush and some painters tape (or a pattern or stencil) and have at it. I love this fun, almost floral pattern on this floor.

This pattern is fun and whimsical as well. I really like the way these chairs are slipcovered too.

I really like how this pattern almost mimic's the effect of an area rug while still maintaining the texture or a wood floor.

This subtle check pattern would be perfect for a kitchen, mudroom or sunroom.

stripes work too. I love how many possibilities there are with painting floors.

Of course, you don't have to go with a crazy pattern to paint your wood floors, you can always just paint them solid. This is a really great option if you are in a situation where you are exposing original wood flooring (that may have been covered with carpet) and it is not in great shape. It may look better, and be a lot cheaper to paint over the original flooring than to replace it.

What do you think about painting wood floors?
