Hand painted floor cloth . . . on a budget.

At The Next Cool Event, one of the exhibits was a design inspired by "I Dream of Jeannie". The idea was to create a floor that appeared to be custom tile. . . on a budget. Instead, we used the back side of a piece of linoleum vinyl flooring that we got as a remnant. My first custom floor cloth project was done this way almost 15 years ago. With quality products, they last for years.

    Yeah really!! Oh my aching back - and knees! I've "embellished" my deck w/leaves and other things found in nature so I can well appreciate the time & effort this took. Fantastic job!!

    Tons of work but I bet you all had fun doing it. Do you seal it somehow to protect it?

    Andy, it was literally a 2 day paint party! To keep the colors from yellowing, use multiple coats of a water based (rather than oil) topcoat. Stays Clear by Ben Moore is my top coat of choice.
