Working With: Worn Out Hardwood Floors - Emily A. Clark This works for painting over hardwood and even vinyl surfaces. Perhaps we could use to create a refreshed look from the dated, ok-condition vinyl floor in units. Alternative to carpet replacement and wood floor refinishing.
Painted wood floors can really liven up a room. It's fairly simple to do if you're just painting a solid coat but if you're painting a border or some type of design, you'll need to do your homework for a first-rate job.
Before and After: Our hearth room! What a difference a coffered ceiling, painted fireplace, gray walls, and dark wood floors make! Walls are Sherwin Williams March Wind and trim is Benjamin Moore Moonlight White in semi-gloss (fireplace is eggshell finish). The oak hardwood floors were sanded and re-stained a deep espresso brown by Walk on Woods (Rochester, MN). Special thanks to Karen at Design Studio B and Mike Allen Builders.
