painted floors

I saw these beautiful painted floors on the Nate Berkus show today. I have very old hardwood floors that I would like to refinish but this is so different {and risky}. It really makes a huge statement. I am still not sure if I'd have the guts to do something that dramatic. I think I would paint a chevron pattern in my dining room maybe in a mustard yellow or a black and white. I guess you just have to sand the paint off if you ever want them back to the bare wood. With a little one and a dog this is an easy and clean (and affordable) alternative to refinishing your floor or getting a new area rug. Here is a how-to guide from DIYer Kristin Kauffman via Nate's web site on how to paint your floors.
