I went for it. I started painting the floor white and we love it. Both the husband and I were iffy on it looking good or not but I think it looks fantastic! It was a little difficult to paint because we have pets and they have hair. I did a lot of cleaning before I started painting it and then I kept using the dyson while I was painting because a tuft of hair would just magically appear. That part was awful! But it looks good. A refresher of what it was before: Teal walls, white trim, yucky floors
A close up of the damage on the floor. It should have the same color all over, but flecks of it are coming off and looking yucky.
And several coats of white paint later I had a back that hurt like heck and leg muscles that weren’t doing much better. The husband put on the last coat of white because I hurt too much to do it. Anyway, the dining room now looks like this
