This DIY project is for the more seasoned do it yourself-er. Painting a floor is a great solution for fixing damaged wood floors, or an inexpensive solution to replacing your current flooring. And, painting a striped floor requires patience more than skill or talent. Allow base coats to dry thoroughly before taping, masking, or walking on floor. Enjoy this Idea Book on Striped Floors. Some of the floors in this idea book are tiled or vinyl but they are great inspiration.
