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.
The painted vinyl was set in place and easily cut to the exact size in the shape that we needed.
The back side of the vinyl was primed and base coated. The image of the design was projected on to the surface and traced with chalk.
It was laid out on the floor where the design was painted starting from the inside and working outward.
. . . and painted . . . and painted!
Top coats were applied. It was allowed to dry before rolling for transport.

    This is beautiful, but I'd be curious how to finish the edges on a round rug. Off to research yet another project to add to my bucket list, sigh... :)
