Yes, floors can be painted. Most interesting place I've seen paint is ceilings. Most people forget about them. I think they need to be tied into the room and should not always be left white. It can have an effect, or be the only pop of color, it can have stripes or a cool design. I love paint and are not afraid of color.

Oh, wow-- glad you found the blog, Joel-- The floor is GORGEOUS. It takes true vision to see the beauty of a bold idea like the one you share! Thanks for reading along... By default, I WILL send you a copy! :)

Hi. Thanks very much for including me on your blog. I had no idea my painted floor was in HB's new bookazine. Many thanks. Great blog! Joel
