I've always loved painted floors but I think I would have had the guts to paint the floor of my master bedroom if it hadn't already been painted. Now that I have one room with a painted floor, I've explored ideas for painted floors that I might use in other places around the house.
I love the idea of keeping some of the wood natural.
The light high gloss paint in contrasted by the dark walls makes this old house seem elegant and modern.
How cool is this plaid floor?

This floor is a wreck but how fun it looks with this large painted print.
And why limit yourself to the inside?
