How To: Splatter-Paint Your Floor

Bob Vila


Here's an inexpensive and creative way to decorate a floor. Roll on a coat of deck enamel (the color of your choice) and allow it to dry for a couple of days. Then choose three contrasting colors to splatter on top. Fill your brush liberally and move it from side to side, tapping it with a stick. Splatter all three colors at once, so you don't have to wait for each one to dry. When it's thoroughly dry, apply three coats of polyurethane to protect the finish.
