These are the :"rugs" that we painted on my studio floor. The 4'x6' (approx) oval "rug" has dragonflies stenciled on it, the 4'x8' rectangular has Fleur De Lis in the border. I painted these freehand - without using tape - the tape tended to lift the floor paint even though we used the blue painters tape and the floor was painted more than a week ago. Whatever! The floor is OSB flooring - I felt that this floor will be abused over time so a "good" floor wasn't real important.
UPDATED 12/27/2009 - original photos went bye-bye for some reason. These photos were shot yesterday.
The paint we used for the rugs is from the Lowes "oops" (their term, not mine) paint counter. The oops paint counter is where Lowes resells the paint (at a relatively cheap price) that customers return for one reason or another. I bought several colors and mixed up the "rug" colors with the help from some old acrylic paints that I had from long ago.
The part of the floor with the oval "rug" has three coats of polyurethane. I'll put three coats on the other half when the rectangular rug dries. When the polyurethane has dried/cured for several days I'll be moving the furniture from the house into the studio.
