I want to paint our spare bedroom floors. They are planks what type of paint is right?
Hi Annette, here are some instructions on painting a laminate floor. Good luck with your project. Completely Make Over Vinyl or Laminate Floors with Paint - Lifehacker
Jan 22, 2013 - Clean: Kelly recommends giving the floor a good scrub with heavy duty cleaner trisodium phosphate. Sand: Bust out the sander to smooth out and de-shine the floor before painting. Repair: Fill in cracks and holes with caulk from the hardware store. Prime: Standard latex primer works just fine to prep floors, too.
I wonder if chalk paint would work? It goes over everything and takes very little prep work.... then you would have to give it a good wax to seal the paint. After 30 days . The wax should be sealed and water proof. I use Annie Sloan chalk paint on special projects.
Porch and Floor paint should work great for you! I used it over parquet flooring and it has held up amazingly well! Here's my post about how I did it: https://rootsandwingsfurniture.com/blog/paintedfloor/
Thank you to all for you answers
