    Tybee, What a great solution! Painting an already painted floor with the paint available appeals to me. I've used exterior paint on our interior windows and am quite glad I did. The rug is lovely. I would prefer painted wood to LVP.

    I admit, getting rid of the darned paint that I had been carrying around was a big part of the appeal to me, too. I had bought a whole gallon of something 6 years ago when we were painting our house, and then decided I didn't like it--it's a very light sky blue--so we used that in the bedroom, and it's really serene. If it chips, we can touch it up.

    I agree!
    Tybee, my "reading chair" is a rocking chair and I didn't want it to scratch up the floors. I looked online for a solution and learned that the soft side of a strip of Velcro tape could be applied along the runners. That has been working very well for a couple of years now. I mention this in case you decide you want to place a rocking chair somewhere that you don't have a rug.

    Brilliant!!! I will try this today, as I have rockers in the living room and no enough rug, and want to put one in the bedroom!

    That is totally brilliant. If anyone in your house actually likes to rock perhaps as a gag one day you could put the non-soft part of the Velcro on the floor under the runner.
