Painted Vinyl Floor

I suffer from what I call design ADD. Meaning that I often think about and engage in more than one design project at a time which not only means that I usually have several half finished projects around the house, but I also tend to lose sleep over a good idea. So despite the fact that I have a half painted bathroom, mirrors waiting to be hung, chairs to be sanded, painting and reupholstering to do I am already scheming about my laundry room.

It's a small, dark space which has caused me to (against my usual preference) want to paint it white. Bright white walls, white shelving and cabinetry, with pops of color in the accessories and a colorful rug. But I also want to paint the floor. There's no way it can be replaced any time soon, so I've decided painting is the way to go. Here are some great examples of what you can do with a vinyl floor, paint, and a little bit of elbow grease.

  1. Haha! I suffer from the same terrible affliction. How I wish I was able to focus on one thing at a time.

  2. Sarah--what's this news your talking about??? HOW HAVE YOU BEEN???

  3. Found you when looking for floor painting ideas for my kitchen. LOl, my husband and I suffer from this same design ADD. I don't think you could call any room in our house completely finished, but there are many improvements. :)
