This is the kitchen in my previous house. I painted the floor myself with gray and white diamonds. It wasn't hard at all and it held up very nicely.
Here is a scan of a page I ripped out of a magazine. I love the mariner's compass design on this painted floor cloth. At first I thought it was a painted floor but on closer examination I noticed several "wrinkles" so I decided it was a design on canvas. I have a hallway that is unusually narrow with a painted floor in a solid color.
One of these days I hope to decorate it. I might skip the diamonds and just put the mariner's compass in the center. The hardest part would be plotting out the design.
I am not at all ready to tackle such a project. I just wanted you to know what was on my mind today. Thanks for stopping by the cottage. ♥Rosemary
