Wet Paint.

Yesterday Jenny over at Little Green Notebook wrote about this fun Faux Bois floor from Southern Living (originally posted on Haven and Home). The graphic nature of the print adds visual interest and ensures the room is more modern and young as opposed to serious and traditional. I'm sold!

So imagine my excitement when I was flipping through the February issue of BHG last night and discovered another creative lady who was determined to transform her dining room floor with a few cans of paint. She spent only $100 (time was the real investment here) and made her room one-to-remember. The other details in the space are on the traditional side, so by adding this fun paint element to the floor she created the perfect balance of sophisticated and light-hearted design. With a traditional rug, this room would have been so predictable and even a bit stuffy; think that "off limits" dining room no one ever uses.

Something about the painted stripes are so inviting and certainly more appropriate for her four small children and five dogs. Are you on board? Do you have any painted floors in your home? Please do tell me just how wonderful they are!
