Hi I am Interior Designer Ricole Vanterpool of Coco Lynn Designs LLC I specialize in custom furniture , custom Home Linens and High End Faux Finishing welcome to my creativity ❤️
Started with this dingy & dirty Linoluim tile so I swept and mopped the entire surface😝
Trim all corners and edges in your paint color of choice I used Black enamel paint in gloss well it was meant to be gloss however the paint store mixed it wrong and it actually was flat paint🙄
After paint dries (2 even coats no spots) trim all edges again in the gloss lacquer and add accessories wallah it's magic total budget about $80

    Was the paint just regular paint? interior or exterior? How do you keep it from rubbing off? It looks gorgeous!

      Hi Vicki! I am sorry for answering so late 2years later lol, Yes it is actually interior paint with a high lacquer gloss sealer which seals the paint so I haven't experienced any scratching with two little boys at that lol so go for it!

    not to sound dumb (but probably am - ha ha) u said to edge with lacquer but did u put lacquer on entire floor; I would think u would need to do this to protect the paint finish
