Charming Painted floors

 Painted floors add a charming look to a beach house or cottage, and add instant impact. Use a durable porch paint and a polyurethane topcoat  to allow the floor to withstand  traffic. If you like the vintage or tattered look, forget the topcoat and use latex paint that will chip and scratch over time..

Paint a large pattern on the floor for a dramatic look..No matter weather you choose a bold design  or a solid color  a painted floor makes a big  statement.Here are some beautiful inspirations to get the creative juices flowing.

I've been wanting to rip out our carpets since the second we moved it and this just makes me REALLY want to start that project right this minute. These are great inspiration pics - thanks & have a fabulous weekend!
