Painted Floor



This is a kitchen floor that I painted for a client last week. The design of poppies is done with a series of stencils that I designed and cut. The poppies are from a design by William Morris. 
First I primed the floor and painted the background, then I added the pattern with stencils and some hand painting. Then I painted the border, and after everything dried, I put on three coats of Varathane Diamond floor finish. Very durable and easy to keep clean. I hope they're dancing on it tonight!

We bought our home last August 2016, and just found out last week you are the person who painted our floorcloth! We love it! A friend of ours saw the floor and immediately knew it was your work! You painted a floorcloth for her also - Pat S.

Ours is just a painted floor, not a floorcloth!
