What do you think of this hardwood flooring/tile mix? “Like” if you could picture it in your home! #homedecor #interiordesign #riterug #style #remodeling #tile #flooring

Painted wood floor: fill in any large gouges or scrapes, and sand the entire floor lightly. you can use nearly any paint on the floor, but if you're concerned about it rubbing off with traffic, talk to the people in the paint store/department. you can also get clear acrylic sealer to paint over the floor once it's dried and once cured, it'll protect the paint job.

Create a stencil out of large piece of corrugated cardboard (don't need to laminate if using plastic). Rather than prime the area first and then paint over it, save a step by just using primer. A protective coat of polyurethane was applied on top of the stencils

I dont like this exactly, but covering the shelves with newspaper would be kind of cute?

The desk repainted looks great. I got given one but the woman who owned it was such a heavy smoker the wood has dried out.
