Awesome Painted Floors

November 30th, 2013
 
Who doesn’t love the occasional painted floor? I think they look so beautiful and bring so much character  to a room.
My craft room has a cement floor. Originally, I was thinking engineered wood flooring. But then I thought about how awesome a painted floor would look in the space.
 
Mr. Project is not so convinced that it will look nice – or that I’ll actually do the work myself (I hate painting!), but I think it will really make the room unique, so I’m motivated. Hopefully that motivation will get me through!
 
So now all that is left is to pick a design… I love the idea of a simple stripe or diagonal stripe like above. But there are so many awesome stencils… These are the ones that are in the running

So which one do you like best? I’d love to know what you think. I’m not sure about colors yet, but so feel free to recommend colors. Should I go bold or neutral? Or do you just think I’m crazy?! I think I may be a little crazy to take on this project.
Oh and I found all these awesome stencils at Royal Design Studio. Has anyone used one of their stencils or similar for a large project?

    Love the blue and white stripes. My mother in law painted her basement concrete in neutral boxes and it’s boring…or maybe it’s the ugly pull out couch on it that isn’t doing anything for it. haha.

    I really like the first one, the squares. Looking forward to seeing what you decide because we’ve been thinking about pulling up our carpet and staining/polishing the concrete floors throughout our house. Love the idea of a painted design though.

    I love the scalloped lace one. I might have to use that somewhere in my house. I’ll be watching your blog to see how easy/hard you think the process is.
