One project I’m going to embark on in the next few days is making a painted floor cloth for my kitchen. I’ve wanted to do this for many years now, and since my kitchen floor needs some color, and I don’t really want an actual rug, this is a great opportunity to make a floor cloth.
After looking at different canvas options online, and then poking around at Home Depot this weekend to see what I could find, I actually decided to use a remnant piece of vinyl flooring for my “floor cloth”. I think it’ll be more durable, and won’t be prone to wrinkles and waves like canvas can be.
So with my vinyl, paint and primer “at the ready”, I now just need to decide on a design. Stripes seems like the easiest and most obvious choice, so if I go with that, which way should the stripes go?
And then I’ve considered a chevron pattern, and possibly a concentric rectangle pattern.
Any input? Tell me your thoughts!!
Edit: I wanted to see for myself what a concentric rectangle pattern would look like, so I whipped up this quick little pic. I made it too big, but at least it gives the idea.
Hmmm…what say you?
