Adding Color and Pattern to Wood Floors

Painted wood floors create controversy regardless of color choice, so let's set aside the feeling that painting of wood floors is a sin and simply embrace the uplifting energy that a fresh coat of paint can add to flooring.

Painting a floor is a trick that usually is reserved for turning a floor that is beyond repair into a stunner on a budget. Just remember to use paint specific for flooring so that you don't have to re-paint after every high heel that walks through your house.
