Ugly floors, be gone! If only I had a magic wand or an unlimited budget I would totally replace our basement floors. But since I have neither, I use my magic paint brush whenever I can. In this basement room I've painted the walls, cabinets, counter tops and floors. Behold the power of paint! Here's what I did to the floors.
Think it's a rug? Nope. It's painted. This is going to be a studio/craft room and I wanted something that could be wiped clean if needed. I used a pottery barn rug for my design inspiration.
Here's the before. Not a pretty room at all, but it was underutilized space and I was determined to refresh it and start using it.
Here's a peek at the space. Much better in my opinion.
