Knowing how to paint wood floors can make the difference between a stylish statement and a mess. The thought of painting wood floors can be scary, but if your hardwood floor is damaged (or just ugly), painting the floor can make it look great again.
1 Gather your materials.
You’ll need a stir sticks, a couple of 2-1/2-inch synthetic angled sash brushes, a telescoping extension pole, two roller covers, a roller cage, a 5-in-1 tool, a roller tray and liners. You also need a primer and a finish paint (either an interior paint or a specially formulated floor paints).
2 Cut in the edges of your room with your primer.
Once you’ve prepared the room, begin at the corner farthest from the door and cut in the edges of the floor with a 21⁄2-inch sash brush.
3 Roll on the primer.
Use an extension pole to help you to roll the primer on the floor. The pole will speed up the job and save your back. Work in 4-foot-square areas. Let the floor dry thoroughly. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for time — anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours.
