Years ago when I decided to paint the floors in my small summer house, most people were shocked (including my parents). Bare wood floors were so chic and such a staple of 90's style, that painting them over and covering them up seemed sacrilegious. I didn't think so anymore. You can see how they turned out below the jump.
