I love a painted wood floor. Sometimes a room needs a flooring treatment other than a rug. In this particular case, the hallway was dark and uninspiring. The natural stain and the white painted diamonds help give this room a needed punch.
It is a messy process. Be prepared for floor sanding and staying off the floors for days while the poly is applied and dries.
The Osborne and Little wallpaper helps brighten the hallway too!
