I can see maybe years ago or depending on how old you are, you would want to refinish, but with the amazing artists out there and all the beautiful creations I've seen people creating with painting the floors just makes it so much more unique in so many ways. I just pulled my carpet up because I have COPD and really bad allergies and I found hardwood underneath it. I think this was a creative way to freshen up the room until floors can be replaced properly. When I lived in Oak Ridge Tenn, in one of the original government built homes, the floors were abysmal even if they were wood. Though I'd typically agree with Kath above, that floor in the first photo would be very difficult to refinish well.
Although I'm a writer by education and profession, I have a not-so-secret DIY and craft (of almost any kind) addiction.

As soon as we were in escrow the hubby and I started mapping out all the things we wanted to do to the house when it was ours; it was definitely move-in ready but it just needed a few touches of our very own!
We cleaned the wood paneling with TSP spray, then filled in all the holes and cracks with caulking. We used a roller to apply a thin coat of oil-based primer to the paneling and since our wood paneling has grooves we also used a paint brush to primer those grooves. Once the primer was dry, we applied a thin even coat of latex paint with a paint brush to the grooves and then used a roller for the entire wall. Once our first coat of latex paint was dry, we applied one more coat of paint for a flawless look. This awesome Venetian Blind upcycling project was spotted via DesignSponge, to re-create the look, a Mitre box is essential as it helps you get those angled cuts right!
ScrapHacking is about conceptually seeing and practically seizing potential, about re-shaping and re-purposing, making the old look new - or the boring shine & sparkle from an inspired injection of love and creativity. The output of ScrapHacking is Scrappy Chic - an aesthetic which always favors a clever idea or fun process over a perfect result. I restore houses for people who can't afford a lot but are very creative and some of these houses under 50k are absolute masterpieces! I had to dump paint thinner out and crawl around on my hands and knees with a razor blade trying to get the paint up.
Carpets are impossible to keep clean and if they are wall to wall expensive to replace every couple of years, which you have to do, because they are basically germ collectors.
It has funky patched areas (that probably aren't the same wood species) and all sorts of irregularities. Unless you have no pets, small children or shoes in your home - ever - the floors will end up looking crappy within a couple of years.


Since we plan on entertaining a lot (we already had an impromptu game night two days after we moved in), we thought we would start with the living room.
However, if you have some scrap branches lying around in your back yard and feel like getting crafty, all you need to DIY is a chip of wood, a cable key ring, a drill and some craft paints!
Clever -yet stylish- ideas on clever re-purposing, upcycling and recycling take centre stage. Unquestionably, the one pictured above needed resuscitation, and the after is certainly head-turning.
I myself purchased our house knowing it was deemed unliveable and we did everything on our own spending less than $100 total per room and we owe about $30k on the mortgage but just had it appraised for $200k and we haven't touched the outside.
With wood floors (paited or not) you can santitize them every month and not worry what kind of bateria may be growning on them. I couldn't make the leap of painting the floor, so I took a sort of time-delayed-decision approach. The paints were mixed with soft gel medium which helps smoothing out the colors across the canvas. We did not tape off the ceiling because we were having crown moulding installed the next day, but we do suggest taping off the ceiling prior to painting.
Combining the two techniques in one and the same hack, well that is (as you’re about to see from some of the examples in this post) just plain awesome! I say if you're a creative person and can paint, spend less than $20 on paint and polyurethane rip up the icky carpet and make that floor look like a shiny black piano like I think I'm gonna be doing in a room of our house. The gloss of the paint reflected plenty of light, the uniform look of fresh paint took the whole place up a notch. I refinished (by hand with small equipment) about six inches all around the perimeter of my room. Painting wood paneling sounds hard, but in fact although time consuming (waiting for the paint to dry), it's pretty easy to do.
For this post I decided to go kosher and dedicate this entire post to the awesome combo of Chevron & Wood – enjoy! It is temporary- but its holding up very well to our country life (read dirty) and dogs and 2 young boys. The day after we received our keys we officially became Do-It-Yourselfers and painted the paneling and the whole living room ourselves and we're so glad we did, now our living looks bright and big! Also if you absolutely have to have it "wood looking" it's worth checking out the laminate planks.
That sounds awful to some ppl but we did our whole kitchen in it only cost $150 and everyone that comes thru thinks it's real wood.
The canvas below displays cut paper towel tube sections that have been flattened and arranged to create an organic yet geometric motif.
If anyone is still on the fence after reading thru here, google "painted hardwood floors" and the designs are very easy but look so expensive and you'll know you'll have an absolute original!

The results are shown on a window panel below, but we think the effect would be equally stunning on a canvas.
White on white looks ultra modern, but experimenting with colorful shades of paint could be just as striking. The temporary Paris apartment below needed an affordable wall art solution, and the answer was DIY potato prints! The creator of this project took special care to give the borders of each canvas an aged effect, which plays up the vintage quality of the artwork. In the DIY chevron art project below, a stencil and some metallic paint provide geometry and shine. We can envision this art hanging in a child’s room, especially if old toys are used in the process! By covering the canvas below in crisscrossing strips of painter’s tape, then painting over the surface with bold acrylic paint and peeling away the tape, the creator of this project formed a series of modern overlapping triangles.
To create your own modern painted wood wall art, purchase an assortment of thin wooden pieces, as well MDF board, paint and liquid nails.
