Remember when I pulled the carpet up in my dining room and kitchen. The carpet in the kitchen was that nasty 80's thin crapet (yes, I know I typed crapet on purpose!). It had a tile looking pattern and that yellow foam backing that apparently doesn't come off the stupid floor!!
Well after walking on it for 3 months we have worn down most of the crap and I think I could get away with painting it now!!
In the begin stages of my blogdom (you know, when no one but family read my blog) I had a post with inspirational pics of painted flooring!

|I love the huge checker board pattern!|
|Another Large Checkerboard|
|I like the border around the edge, definitely doing this for ours. It looks more finished.|
|Loving this! I'm thinking I like the colors and worn look for this floor!|
|I like the idea of striped too, because this would be much easier than checkerboard.|
|This could be an easy alternative to checkerboard, because you could just use really wide painters tape!|
|This is nice and I love the ceiling!!|
|I am thinking just a plain white floor would be simple and awesome! Jonathan Adler did this one and it is to die for!|
This room is way too much for me but I do love the floor. It's like s strappy quilt that has random pieces ordered by a perfect grid. This idea could be executed in a million different ways.
So, what should I do?!? I am thinking white floor with a painted "rug" under where (say it fast underwear hahaha...hey, it's late!) the dining room table will be and a real rug for the kitchen.
I don't want too much going on visually on the floor because I painted my stairs and I love them!!
