Particle Board Floor Turned Into a Stone/granite Floor

by Shelly
My linoleum ripped and underneath was a particle board floor that was getting water damaged. On a tight budget, I planned to just stain and seal the particle board, BUT I made a mess of it. In the end I used the Rustoleum stone spray paint and sealed it with polyurethane. Now it looks like stone or granite, Though this look is not for everyone but I love it. I now have a durable, easy to clean stoe floor! (I am sorry if this leaves a large space at the top, i don't know to make ti!)
My new floor
Particle board has some green stains on it so, I used a dark stain, dumb move!
Stained particle board, I hated it!
Finished, stones flooring. It took about four cans to get the cover I want. I like this a lot better! I know its not for anyone but I like it. My daughter started moving to her own place before I could ploy it. I was amazed this floor held up to having a treadmill drug across the floor! even with no poly, now it is even stronger and cleaner,

    Hi, Did you just spray straight onto the cleaned floor or use a primer first? Then did you use anything over the top to strengthen it? I have Masonite flooring because my kitchen lino was ripped and I have NO money. This looks great! Michelle

    This looks great! I love that you tried something on your own, before spending thousands to have a new floor installed.
