Bathroom Floor "Painted Rug"

The DIY Showoff

Would you believe that this beautiful hand-painted bathroom floor started off as unfinished plywood subfloor? Now, it's a graphic black-(actually very chocolate-y dark brown)-and-white painted rug that perfectly compliments the rest of the room:

Spotted at The DIY Showoff, there's even a tutorial on how to do something similar yourself.

Starting from an unfinished plywood subfloor in an old farmhouse, there was much sanding to provide a smoother surface. The floor was painted in a gorgeous dark brown porch paint (Valspar Porch and Floor paint in "Journey"), then the "rug" was laid out in a contrasting white. A border was taped off and painted, then the pattern was stenciled on for the finishing touch. To see it all, including more before and after shots, head on over to the The DIY Showoff.
