And don't worry–;painting vinyl floors is a super durable option if you use the right supplies. Mine have been painted for over 4 years and are still gorgeous!

It was such a tragic brick pattern and was vinyl. Not my cup of tea. But, I did not want to spend much money on the floor. I had seen the laundry room makeover byKelly at A View Along the Wayand fell in love with it. She had painted her vinylfloors and they turned out beautifully, so I gave it a shot.

1) Select the pattern and colors to use- I opted for a striped pattern for painting vinyl floors, much like Kelly used. Instead of going with deep black and stark white, I wanted a softer lookpillow case baby, so I used an antique white and charcoal grey. I purchased 1 quart of each color in Valspar at Lowe's. Be SURE to purchase porch and floor paint. It is durable and is intended for foot traffic.

2) Clear and clean the floor area- I was lucky that our laundry room was large enough to scoot the washer and dryer in and out of position to paint the floor underneath it. But, if you are not so lucky, you will have to move those bad boys somewhere else for a few days. After you clear the floor, you need to clean the floor. Make sure it is clear of dust and dirt. Some people recommend using TSP (a heavy duty cleaner), but I did not have any on hand, so I used my normal floor cleaner (I use Mrs. Meyer's All Purpose Cleaner).

3) Prime the floor- I used regular old KILZ General Purpose Interior Primerto prime the entire floor. I poured the primer directly on the floor and used a small paint roller to spread it. I only used one coat of primer and that worked just fine. I did it around 9pm one night and let it dry overnight.

4) Painting the vinyl floor–; This steps has several “;sub-steps”;:

That's it! Now you know how to paint vinyl floors. It sounds like a lot of steps (and it is), but each step takes no more than 10 to 20 minutes. I found painting my floor moved FAR more quickly than painting walls. I think all of the steps combined took me less than 2 hours (excluding drying time). In other words, it was easy to knock out in the evenings after work without being too exhausted the next day.

The end result is G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S! Painting our vinyl floors is the MOST WORTHWHILE 2 HOURS OF MY DIY LIFE! I absolutely love, love, love this floor. UPDATE: It has been painted for over 4 years now and it is holding up perfectly. We have not “;babied”; it at all. We are as rough on it as we have ever been–;laundry baskets get scooted across it, etc. and there is no damage or scratching whatsoever from daily use. We did have to remove and replace the water heater at one point and the floor did get scraped in one area when the plumber dragged the old water heater out, but that was understandable and was easy to touch up.
