Painted Floors

Have any of you painted your floors before?  I mean in high traffic areas.  We have a garage that needs to be turned into a playroom ASAP and I have this image in my head of a clean crisp white room.  Floor to ceiling with all white linens and seagrass rugs.  I'm living in a dream world.  That's just the worst idea ever with 3 boys and a dog, right?  I want feedback on painted floors and how they hold up..let me know!

I could go with a fun geometric or stripe to try and hide the dirt?

Oh I'm interested to hear too. But my guess for a playroom would be a disaster considering all the toys getting scraped up against it.

I would love to re-do my garage too! We need a playroom so bad, our house is completely covered with toys! I love the black and white geometric pattern but I am with you, I adore all white ceiling to floor.

Hey, this is so funny but my sister just emailed me this article today about painting floors. I thought you might like to read it. She is thinking about painting their basement floors.

thank you so much natalie!!! i am going to do it!!! if it gets messed up we can repaint or throw a rug on top, right?! the paint would be going on our concrete floors most likely in an effort to save some moola. so, we will probably have rugs anyway!!! thanks again for sharing!
