green idea: diy painted floors

Need to get rid of bad carpet or linoleum but can't afford new flooring? Paint your floors! It takes a little work, but will only cost you a can of paint. With durable options like Benjamin Moore deck paint, it will outlast even the heaviest traffic. If you are lucky enough to have plank flooring, you can achieve a great cottage feel. But even the normal plywood subfloor boards painted out can look amazing.

Happy painting!


  1. Your examples are pretty fabulous! Actually, you've got me thinking about some spaces in my home. Hmmmm! :-)

  2. I know, I think I will try this very soon. Love the stencilled bathroom floor.


I'd love to hear from you. Thanks for making my day!
