Do it! PAINT your Floorboards
1 Smooth boards with mediumgrade sandpaper. Vacuum and wash thoroughly with soapy water.
2 Once dry, coat with floor paint using a wide, good-quality, synthetic bristle brush. Cover the full length of no more than two boards at a time.
3 Apply a second coat if needed, then leave to dry for at least 48 hours to ensure a good finish.
