Here are some pics of the floors I have done in the past. Most are with use of stain but the one with the red cubes is done with paint.

Let me know what you think!

Thanks Grant! I think I average about 40 hours or so per room..or floor.

Lots of taping and lots of taping;)

Obviously you are an artist judging from these works. For those of us who are “artistically challenged” this is a real treat to see something like this. Very nice and quite original. I, like Grant, would probably have problems walking across the 3D floors.

Thanks for posting.

I saw that cube floor outside of a bar one time. It was quite funny to watch people who had had one too many walk out and see that. Great work!

RobG…I think it was something the cops came up with…”Here son, walk a straight line on this floor!”

Mindseye, I love the stain, especially the pinwheel, but the paint really “floors” me!

Yikes! That first one is, um…, disorienting? Clearly good work, however.

OK, tell us something…When you stained the pattern on the floor, how do you do the straight lines without getting any bleeding? I mean, with paint you use masking tape. But stain is as thin as water and would bleed under the tape. Gel stain?

Hi Dadoo, ya I did get some bleeds.
When it did bleed I would take a little piece of sand paper and just lightly sand them out.

I used normal stain on the floors both oil based and water based.
