THYME for a sunroom makeover

I decided to go with an 
theme throughout my home
so I decided to start by painting my sunroom floor

I had painted the brown and gold checks on the floor 
when we first bought the house 
after ripping out the carpet that was there

I first roughed up the floor by sanding it with an electric sander
I then proceeded to tape off my design
In order for my floors to with stand the heavy
wear that they would be subjected to in the sunroom
I used a poly whey additive to make the paint more durable for floors
The product I used 
Vermont Natural Coatings
Paint Plus with Poly Whey Additive

I painted the field and stars first

I then did the RED stripes

That way I could walk across the floor while the paint
 was still wet in the areas that would
 become the 
WHITE stripes

I finished my floors with
4 coats of
Aqua Zar
Interior Water Based Polyurethane

I spray painted all my 
WHITE wicker RED

here are some daylight pictures

I used a stencil to do some of the pillow fronts

My finished room!

I love the new summery look!

Happy Painting!

"Each day is a new canvas to paint upon. 
Make sure your picture is full of life and happiness, 
at the end of the day you don't look at it 
wish you had painted something different."

  1. Love the floor and thanks for following

  2. Looks good! The Paint Plus from Vermont Coatings can be added to any paint product? I couldn't find it online, I'm not sure if they discontinued it. Sounds like it makes the paint durable, yes?


Keep those brushes flying!
