Art on the Floor - Follow Up

After this post the other day, fellow blogger No.35 Style mentioned to me that she had painted her kitchen floors. Well, you know I had to see it so she sent me to these pictures.

Fabulous isn't it? Very well done!

Here are some more floors to inspire...

The picture above and below literally make me swoon.

Although in my dream house in my head all the floors are wide plank, worn, pickled and/or white washed; I may do a high gloss white somewhere....

One bullet point on my ever growing project list is to scrape off my front porch and paint large stripes on the floor. When I get around to that I am sure I will go to my local Benjamin Moore, but until then BM can help me research it here.

I am so swooning with you. beautiful. I wonder if you can paint concrete with a pattern for my patio and porch, any ideas?

Haven and Home said...

Yes, you can paint concrete floors. You have to use a special primer but it is possible! I would love to see what you come up with. The pattern possibilities are endless!

Wow amazing. I can't believe No 35 did that on her own. What hard work. Love painted floors. Can't wait to do it in a home I own, but hubby says no in this one. Boo to him!

Marianne! That is your front porch, I am so envious! Great post on painted floors, that black and white check is something else!

LOVE painted floors. trying to talk the husband into painting our kitchen/breakfast room floors, and maybe our deck (which we don't have yet).

I adore painted floors too. In fact those most insanely gorgeous stencil just showed up on my step today. I am so excited to get started. (we're doing this on concrete floors) Those bias stripes are fantastic.

best blog friend! I deleted your sweet Boston comment b/c I'm not telling work people yet...although they are probably wondering why my house if for sale...I'll just let them think I'm pregnant or something. I'm totally going to do that "my taste" thing. I have some Dwell magazine's I've been saving for such an occasion.
