How to Paint a Floor Plaid

Over the years, we’ve renovated most of our cottage, inside and out. We have an enclosed front porch where we have a table and chairs for dining and a bed for lazy afternoon naps. The floor has been in terrible condition and the goal has been to replace it. But, the funds have not been available, and after fourteen years, we finally decided to paint it.
This is what we had to deal with. We sanded and filled gouges with Bondo.
We primed; we masked; we painted.
The end result was well worth it. Gabe thinks so, too!
