Kitchen flooring options

June 22, 2012


Directions: 1. After following all the preparation steps, top your primed floor with two coats of the cream paint (or your desired color) for the base coat. Allow to dry completely overnight. 2. Using measuring tape, map out a grid of 2-foot squares and tape alternate squares with low-tack tape. 3. With a roller, paint alternate squares green, then remove the tape carefully and let green paint dry (your floor should look like a checkerboard at this stage). 4. When paint is completely dry, retape the cream squares on every alternate row, then dip your roller in gray paint and paint over the taped cream squares (your floor should now have alternate rows of green and cream squares and green and gray squares). Let dry completely. 5. Using a !4-inch paintbrush, apply !4-inoh-wide cream lines vertically and horizontally down the center of the green and gray squares and ‘/i-inch-wide burgundy lines vertically and horizontally down the center of the green and cream squares.6. After allowing paint to cure for two days, apply three to five coats of low-sheen varnish for shine and protection; let varnished floor cure for one week.
