painting unfinished flooring?
My sister has turned me on this beautiful painted hardwood flooring for my weaving loft. It is way out of my budget for the space, so I want to explore the possibility of DIY.
You can still see the grain through this paint or stain.
Can bamboo flooring be stained or painted like this? What other wood would be a good choice to try? Would it be best to do it before installation or after?
And would I really save much money doing it myself? The cost of the flooring, not including installation is $12/foot. I'd rather spend $5/foot at most.
If it seems plausible I would try to buy a small sample and do some tests before committing to the entire floor.
I really wish she hadn't shown me this stuff!
