Rachel of VanHook & Co. is sharing a project that features paint in an unexpected way: refinishing a worn out wooden floor in her kids’ room.

A painted floor may not be a DIY for the faint of heart, but the floor in Rachel’s kids’ room turned out beautifully. After experimenting with paint on their hallway floors, Rachel and her husband decided to apply a distressed version to their children’s room. Not only does it blend nicely with the hallway, but they don’t have to worry about the kids messing up the paint. Their wear will only add to the gorgeous distressed look.

Thanks Rachel! Readers, if you want to learn more about Rachel’s paint projects, check them out on her blog VanHook & Co.
