How to paint outdated linoleum floor

Paint a floor 13 hours ago
Last week I showed my oak cabinets that I painted white. Several people remarked about not painting wood. I hope no one has objections to me painting linoleum. :)

    Hmm....I would LOVE to do a dark charcoal or black and a vintagey cream. Or after painting it all, rolling on a stain [not sure if that would work to make it look old or if the stain would actually dry. I am sure a clear coat like a coat of garage glaze

    I have the blues about the blues--they are on their way out. :) I had done the blue to tie in the blue counter tops. But, now they are gone, so the blue squares need to go! I'll post an update when I'm done. :)

    Denise--I hated my floor, I honestly didn't care if I got only 6 months out of it. :) It's been a year and a half, and it's holding up great. Whether it will hold up 5 years I dunno. Heck I may repaint it before then. :)
