When you search for painted floor DIYs online, this yellow goodness is one of the first tutorials that you will encounter.

The original flooring was carpeted maple wood.

She and her family painstakingly removed the carpet, sanded and smoothed the wood, primed it, painted the base color (yellow), and then added pretty stencils in white.

The result: the most adorable living room floor in history!

2. Paisley Faux Carpet

This DIY painted floor idea is also on wood, plywood subfloor to be exact.

The method used for painting the subfloor is different in a way from the previous DIY because Carrie added borders.

Important tip from Carrie: seal the floor with a non-yellowing floor sealer in satin finish to protect it and help keep it clean.
