Have you got a patch of flooring that you would like to hide? the kids stained it and you just cannot get rid or the mark?  Maybe you just have a large area and want to put something there to add some colour and life?

Today we have three fantastic cheap and effective ideas for decorating your floor from DIYideas. There is sure to be something to suit your needs.  We cover three very different mediums, but for each you will need just a little budget for some materials and paints.  To create any of these, click on the links provided for instructions.  We have included the pictures to help inspire you!

1. Vibrant Vinyl

Using an old remanent of vinyl you can cut it down to size and after giving it a good clean up, can repaint it and then using a stamp create a pattern such as this leaf one around the border.

For full instructions on exactly what you need and how to go about this project click on the title.

2. Brighten a Jute Rug

This Jute rug was once a boring brown, but with a bit of paint and some thick sticky tape has been turned into a fun and funky rug.  Of course you do not need to use super bright colours and instead may go for a more natural look.

For all the instructions and how too, click on the title.  One tip though is to select a tightly woven jute for crisper lines.

3. Painted Design

Our final idea (courtesy of DIY Ideas) is the Painted Porch.  Here they have used two different tones to create a stripe.  First the porch is painted with the shades and then a stencil is applied to get the chicken wire effect, though you could use any type of stencil.
