How to Paint Your Kitchen Floor Red

My brother lives in a cottage on the D-Ring Ranch. The owner of the ranch had wall-to wall carpeting throughout the cottage. Probably in an effort to keep it warmer during the winter months.
But, having carpeting in a kitchen & bathroom is not really practical with a dog, and a muddy ranch. My sister in law really wanted to do something different.
I recommended the first day I was here that for the time being they rip it up & paint the sub floor. It's not the ideal solution...but, it completely fits in with the rustic charm of their place.

We started by getting the necessary provisions.

Then we began by ripping all the carpeting up in the kitchen, hallway, and bathroom.

Next, we scraped up any leftover glue & gave the floor a good vacuuming.

Then a coat of primer.

While things were drying up, we took a break.

Then, on to laying on two coats of red paint.

Another break....

And a final two coats of sealer.

Then the finished product!!

Actually, there wasn't as much time to cook as I wanted!
But, I did make some Beef Bourguignon in the kitchen pre-floor :)
