Q: I just rented a small studio apartment in Boston's South End and am starting the process of making it fabulous. I love the look of a black painted wood floor but would also like my security deposit back when I move out. Are there any products out there that would allow me to paint the hardwood floors and easily remove the paint when I move out? I came across something called "FloorPeel Black" that says it is a temporary, peelable floor covering used in photographic studios that need the floor to be black.

Has anyone ever used this? Does it really work? Any other suggestions?
