Painted floors—instant charm

Tomatoe red floors

The first painted floor I ever loved was in Mary McDonald’s kitchen.  It was painted with brown and creme stripes that varied in size.  I love this red one—how fun would it be to cook here!

        Floor paint is the most durable. Benjamin Moore makes a great one. Boat and deck paint will also work.

        You can sand it for an aged look-or-seal it with a high gloss sealer for more shine.

      They had them custom built.You could have a good carpenter or handy man do it.

      They are not complicated-just time consuming . Thanks
