the floors in this room were really beat up.
so i could pay a bunch of money to fix them OR i could have some fun with them for practically nothing.
i chose the second...obvs.
first i primed the floor with KILZ.
then i painted white stripes with the white semi-gloss trim paint that we had.
i just used the lines of the wood planks to determine the stripes....i did 8 planks wide per stripe.
THEN i added yellow stripes with paint from Ace Hardware called ButterCream.
i thought "whoa that's bright" when i opened it.
yellow is a hard color.
so after i painted the stripes and let it dry a day or two i went back and it was definitely brighter than i wanted.
so...i took white paint and added water....maybe equal parts paint and water?
then i used a dry rag and wiped it into the yellow stripes.
