Before and After ~ Playroom Floorboards

Once we had put the children into a bedroom together, we wanted to turn the nursery into a playroom. First job was to rip up the laminate floor (see this post for pics), we were planning on putting a carpet down but luckily the floorboards were ok so we decided to paint them.



Before


Sanded and Scrubbed (during!)


Undercoat



After


Great Stuff!

I just love painted floorboards, they are really easy to keep clean and look great! We are currently doing the ones in the living room, so will post some pictures soon. I would definitely recommend Farrow & Ball floor paint, it goes on lovely and dries really fast.

More pics of the playroom to follow soon.

Thank you for reading xx

    1. Thank you! The stop gap stuff is made from a clear plastic and it just fits between the floorboards to stop draughts! If you check out their website they have a video on how to fit it www.stopgaps.com
      Thanks for stopping by x

  3. Yes — I wholeheartedly agree! I've used various floor paint and F&B is by far my favourite.

    It's quite a lot more expensive than some of the other brands but I really think you get what you pay for. The coverage is good and it dries so fast! I wish I had floorboards in this house to paint!! ;) Thanks so much for linking up with #HomeEtc x
