    So their innovative idea was the slap on a coat of paint?

    The main thing wrong with the before pic was all the clutter on the counters.

    That paint looks like shit. If they were trying to save money, they should have saved up $$ and just ripped the floor up if they didn't like it. Idiots.

    Why not just strip off the old, yellow varnish and re-seal with a slightly darker woodstain?

    I never could understand why people paint over a wood floor.

    I agree with nearly every(maybe every single) comment.

    When it comes to wood floors and paint..unless they are a disaster, the most I would do is 'pickle' them so the wood grain shows through..I can see that done in a Colonial style home or something.

    But in this case, just refinish the floor..use a darker stain if you want. This was not a great improvement by any means.

    The before was so much better. They could've just cleaned the kitchen and bought decent cabinet pulls and had a much better after shot than slapping turquoise paint on a gorgeous wood floor!

    I am also normally opposed to painting hardwood floors...but I did recently go to an openhouse where the upstairs attic space had the hardwoods painted white. It looked fantastic because the space was small and dark and it just brightened up the entire space. Very nice. However, in this situation, I would just burn it.

    It was better before. They should have done a strip and re-stain.

    They are really going to regret that paint on a high traffic wood floor in the kitchen, even if they put 10 coats of poly.
