It works for floors that are beyond refinishing in any other way, yet you aren't ready to replace the floor.

Here was one person's approach - she

Oh yeah - that's a great pattern! But I'd paint those walls too! I think a grey that matches the outlines in the floor pattern would be cool!

Yes! In one old house we renovated the wood floors were almost 100 years old and in really bad shape. We couldn't afford to put new ones in and didn't want carpet, so we painted them black. Sounds bold, but everyone liked them. It looked really neat, imo.

I've been obsessed with some of the painted floors I've seen on Pinterest lately too. I really want to try this if we buy an old house again. (DH would kill me if I painted our the hardwood floors we have now, since we put them in new a few years ago!)

Here's one I thought was really neat (but I'd paint the walls!)
