Painting a Linoleum Floor


I am thinking of painting a floor that is covered with linoleum? What do you think?

You could always try it but I don't believe it will work very well. For one example, the paint will wear through to the linoleum where you walk the most leaving paths of exposed linoleum. What you could do is have new linoleum laid over the old. (12/30/2008)

I did that years ago. You need to use floor and deck enamel and make sure the floor is really clean before you start painting. It lasted ok for a few years til we were able to afford a new floor. (12/30/2008)

You can do it. Put a coat of Gripper paint primer on it first and let it cure for a whole day. Then put your paint on. Top with two coats of polyuethane. You can get a matt finish if that is what you want. (12/31/2008)
