My Hand Painted "FAUX" Hardwood Cement Floors

This is one of my projects that I finished over the summer break. I really would like to have hardwood floors but that is currently not in my budget since my husband and I are trying to become debt-free (Dave Ramsey fan). I couldn't stand the old tile that was on the floor anymore so I pulled it up and painted my cement floor to look like wood. I think I did a great job. One day I will have the cash to do the real thing but for now I am happy. NO MORE UGLY TILE.

Me too! We're having wood floors put in starting tomorrow. Total upheaval. I wish my floors looked like yours right now! Another thing - the creative person you once were is a gray shadow compared to the colors yet to come. Your work is just lovely.
Your friend,

The floor is great! I painted a metal door to look like wood. Most people think it's real. Isn't woodgrain fun to do? You get that great "Look what I can do" feeling after finishing the project.
