Like most things in the kitchen, the floor wasn't bad before, but it wasn't great either. "The floor needed some refinishing because of wear and tear, but if we did that, we would have to redo all of the downstairs flooring," says Jennifer. "By painting the floor, we were able to delineate between the kitchen and the rest of the flooring in an appropriate manner," Diane says. And without all the cost. Painters tape, paint, and a stencil were all that was needed to make this simple project come to life.
