Painted hardwood floor? OR ... ?
I am tearing out some carpet in my Florida house. I really would like to do a painted hardwood floor ala:
1) Has anyone doen something like this, especially when putting in brand new floors?
2) Do you think this is an OK/practical look for a house w/ a pool and w/ two dogs that live in the house that like to run around?
3) What kind of wood would you use to paint? I'm having my great "handyman" do the install and the paint job. I found some white pine that is really inexpensive that I think would work but is that going to be a good choice w/ water and dogs
Alternatively, does anyone have other suggestions for hardwood floors? I am going for a beachy/coastal sort of theme. Laminate is not an option in our house, nor is carpet, and I don't particular want tile so it needs to be some kind of hardwood and I really lean towards light, not dark. I also don't want to spend a fortune because this is a "winter" house, we won't be here all the time...
