Question:

Painting a rug on a wood floor.?

Hi everyone, I have a encolsed porch that i am redoing and the exsiting floor is wood and is painted so i just repainted it well i was thinking about painting a rug onto the floor just to add a little something different and special to the room. I am having a hard time finding any informatiot on it. I am looking for ideas for patterns (a little more torwards a country pattern) and ideas on how to do it what steps i should use and if anyone out there has ever done this you're input on it would be sooooo geatly appreciated!!! In a nutshell any hep at all would be appreciated!!! Thank you for you're time:)

Answer:

Pick your patterns from any source. I copied my kitchen plates because of their interesting pattern. Creating a rug is even easier: Measure out your rug and have fun filling it in with a pattern, then add tassels. Use stencils or have your kids make hand prints on the floor. Paint their names in their designated area. Experiment! If you're not happy with the result, swipe it with a wet rag while the paint is still wet, then redo. What to do (after preparation): 1. Roll on two coats of Kilz primer/stain blocker. Let dry between coats. 2. Roll on (or spray with a compressor) two coats of a medium- or high-priced latex flat paint in the color of your choice. 3. Create your patterns, rugs, etc. Let dry. 4. Wearing a respirator mask (you're going into chemical warfare!), roll on two coats of Breakthrough sealer with a 1/4 nap roller. Let dry

One option you might ought to consider is a semitransparent stain with a white or light gray pigment. This is a real common floor finish color and would hold up a lot better than a paint. The grain still shows through a little and it tends to look like an antique type wood finish.

I'm about to do something similar to this on my dining room wood floor. I'm picking up some ivy stencils, taping and staining a large rectangle to simulate a carpet edge and stenciling the ivy in gel stains (3 different colors) along the carpet edge.
