Painted Wood Floors

For our new Kitchen we're installing wood flooring to match the rest of the house. I've always loved painted wood floors and especially checkerboard floors, so instead of staining it I thought I would paint it.
I'm still not sure what colors I want to use, but I've got plenty of time to make a decision on that one.

Black and white is so classic and timeless

  7. I too love painted floors. The Harlequin floor is amazing and the lace patterned one is beautiful.
    But that first one definitely has my heart!

  8. Love that look! I have that same first picture saved in my Decorating Ideas folder! I may even have the kitchen with the black and white floor. I love a harlequin pattern on a floor and would love to have one some day.

  9. I love all of them. I painted my kitchen floor red and cream large squares on the diagnal and I alove it. It is very cheerful and unexpected. I would love to paint a floor in the bathroom but they are tiled and I don't think that could be done:) Good luck with yours.

  13. I love painted floors too! Our entire house is the original hardwood floors and I hate rugs so we own none. I'd love to paint a rug on the floor to tie everything together but the big hurdle would be talking the Mr. in to it :)

  17. Hi Miss Trixie,
    Love your idea to paint the wooden floors. The last photo somehow looked like you to me. Beautiful! I especially loved the first photo..rustic going down..rustic throughout all the wear and tear of living.

    Glad to see you back online! Blogging hasn't been the same without you.

  18. Your post made me wish I had some old wood floors somewhere -- adorable! The first one is my fave too, but I love the aqua-ish bathroom floors and the lace ones, and...and...and... ALL OF THEM! Can't wait to see what you do with yours.

  19. I love the first one as well. Haven't gotten the courage to paint our yet. Looking forward to seeing yours when finished.

    Hugs,

  20. Trixie, all these floors are so pretty. I'd love to do this to my plywood (yes, plywood) floors, but I just don't have the energy. Would you come over and help??? Just kidding, I can use area rugs.
    Looking forward to seeing what you chose!

  22. I too love painted floors! I have had one in mind for my dining room for the last several years...the only thing, I don't want to paint on our new flooring. I have an idea to paint on something that will go under my table and still give the same look. Can't wait to see how yours will turn out!!

    Hugs,
    Victoria
