Painted floors are an interesting and artistic  way to spruce up an old room.  Forget re-finishing your floors. Use  stripes, solids, geometric, and organic designs. They look fabulous painted on wooden floors.  You can do everything from a shabby, organic look to a crisp, geometric paint job.   A traditional stripe or diamond looks great, but you can also branch out to do a fun design for a kids’ room or kitchen.  Below are some beautiful examples of rooms designed with painted floors. Look at this breathtaking floor! Dean Barger painted this floor for Eric Cohler. This striking room is "living" proof that a painted floor can be an elegant alternative for transforming a space.
