I see a new DIY trend emerging….painted floorboards. Wooden floors are no longer limited to stains and limewashing. Many of you have in the past 15 years ripped up carpet in an older home to reveal floorboards which were then given a clear varnish.
If your looking to add a whole new look to your home this is it. Its not a weekend job, you need time to prep and paint with maximum drying time between coats but the results can be fabulous.
You can play with colour, patterns, striped, chevron etc. I really love the look of contrasting wood with paint. I do love the clean lines of stripes and I imagine that the process of the actual painting would be easier too.
I love the power of paint, its ability to transform a space never ceases to amaze me.
I have seen many amazing designs for painted floors that I would love to share with you, so I will collect them all and write another post very soon.
Would you consider painting your floors? Have you ever thought to paint your ceilings? Read this post on Painted Ceilings for more inspiration on adding colour in unexpected places.
