Painting hardwood floors

Posted by Mike on September 27th, 1998 07:52 PM

I just bought a house that was built in 1919.
I discovered painted hardwood floors under the carpet
in the living room. I am decorating the house in a
country cottage motif.

I am toying with the idea of painting the floor --
first with a primer (like Zinsser B.I.N) and then
applying a flat latex finish (light colonial yellow).
Then I would like to stencil the floor with Amish hex
sign designs and, finally, apply 3 coasts of polyurethane.

Has anyone out there painted their floors. If so,

(1) were you satisfied with the finished product?

(2) what method did you use to paint your floor?
