I had to remove all the carpeting in my home and found I have hardwood floors -- but they are in rough shape. In some of the rooms, 24-36 inch borders were painted on the floors and the middle of the floors are paint splattered. In other rooms, there are unstained areas, and other rooms have different stains in different areas. I know the best thing to do would be to sand all the floors and refinish them -- but it's not something I can tackle myself and I can't afford to have someone come in to do it.

I've seen redecorating shows where the wood floors have been painted. Has anyone done this? Does it require special prepration? Special paint? Etc.

I though I'd try it in my bedroom first ... but hope someone here can give me some insight.

Thanks.
