You're on the right track now--painting tiles on the floor, and other things
that will see a lot of wear should be done in more permanent
tiles, etc., and won't cost you much if you do the work yourself.

In fact there a show on TV this weekend on a woman who covered nearly every
of her home in tiles, glass and trompe l'oeil painted surfaces--like doors
etc--fun surfaces. I guess my advice to you is to use proper materials that
designed for the wear they'll be subjected to and use paint sparingly.
Yes, I saw that program on TV where the lady did mosaic on everything. It was
a little overboard though. The stained glass marble sink I did is in the
guest bathroom and adds just the right amount of sparkle. Yes, I agree about
using paint sparingly but I was prepared to lay a new floor over the painted
one I did if it didn't hold up or if I didn't like it. Well, that's been 2
years now and it is wonderful!!! The paint guy shows off my pictures & sells
the products to others. The trick is to prepare to floor first & use the best
products. I sealed it with 3 coats of Varathene & when done I used my
handheld sander to see if I could ruin the floor & it didn't budge.
Thanks for the advice.
