Back when she was trying to get her High Heeled Foot in the Door, Camila (who now blogs at Effortless Style) decided she needed a dose of “WOW” in her kitchen. Did she replace her cabinets, knock down walls and buy all new appliances? No, she painted her kitchen floor jade green. How’s that for “WOW,” eh?

It looks pretty spectacular to me. I admit that when I’m feeling dramatic, the craziest I get is painting my fingernails. It takes guts to break out of the ordinary. But, don’t be afraid to add some “WOW” to YOUR home, wherever it may be. It’s a whole heck of a lot better than “Eh.”

    Wow! That looks fantastic. I had green floors in my last house, but they were very old and other than the edges, they’d never been painted or varnished. I don’t know if I would have had her courage to pain hardwood. But Wow!

    That’s beautiful! My old maple floors may not take another sanding. I’d love to paint the kitchenfloor. Great color.

    I needed this for confidence! In our new little home I have been trying to decide on a color to paint the concrete floow… I have been thinking I need to go “safe” . Guess what??? I don’t! I am going to paint it whatever color I want… maybe even pink! Thank you!
    Have a pretty day!
