There's a kitchen floor that I know, that's covered in horrible tile and would get a facelift on a tiny little budget. I'd demo that tile and stencil right on the subfloor to get me through, if that were my kitchen floor. Might look something like this when it's done. @Ashleigh DeBrunner Ideas, Paintings Wood Floors, Decks, Home Projects, Floors Design, Stencil Floors, Porches, Paintings Floors, Painted Floors
Kitchen Floor Stencil - might need to try this and I love this kitchen, from the lighting to the sink faucet to the colors, the market sign, the counter top, sink tub. LOVE this kitchen.
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.
