I won two gallons of Mythic Paint from the DIY **** monthly contest. Mythic Paint has not compensated me in any way for this post otherwise. In my honest opinion this paint is fantabulous!  I **** the way it glides on.  From their website: Mythic® paint is a non-toxic, ultra low odor paint that provides the durability and coverage you expect from a premium paint without the off-gassing VOC’s and cancer-causing toxins that emit years after drying. Stronger, safer, smarter paint®. Now that’s a breath of fresh air. Being a non-toxic paint isn’t generally that important to me, but after EVERY one of the three furbabies walked through the paint I was glad to know that the paint was safe.  I also enjoyed the ultra low odor,  I seriously smelled NOTHING. I also noticed that this paint did not gunk up my paint brush. The process took about 5 days. After each coat, I placed my paint brush in a baggie. When I did the next coat, the brush was like I just started with a clean brush. When I was finished, the paint cleaned up really easily from the paint brush and roller. I probably should have gotten a semi-gloss sheen since I was painting a floor, but the satin sheen is the LOOK I was going for. I have not sealed this floor. Granted, it’s only been painted about a week, but so far so good.  It does seem to get dirty pretty easily, but it mops up nicely. I had quite a bit of traffic in the ***** week, due to Thanksgiving, and the floor did not scratch, or knick.   Because I did everything by the book, I guess I’ll never know if it was the prep, the paint, or both. The downside of this paint would be the cost. Being an unemployed junker, and DIY maven, I would never have been able to afford this paint. However, if you can afford it, or if you have a special need to use it due to it’s non-toxicity (if you’re ********, or have small children) I highly recommend Mythic paint.

Good tutorial! We did this 2 years ago on top of *** vinyl in a basement ********. We didn’t to the TSP and sanding, just primer and porch and floor paint. You do see the vinyl “pattern” through the final paint layer, but it doesn’t look *****. I also found that I needed several layers of the porch and floor paint to get a good result. Finally, it was very important to give the paint time to harden — not just dry. It took up to a week for ours because it didn’t have great ventilation.

Candace, I have used the Mythic paint on my ******* floor and on my entire fireplace and on several pieces of furniture without any problem of the paint being pulled off. It is great paint, but very expensive. When I updated the color of my floor I used Behr paint (my favorite) and it’s held up very well without sealing. I am so glad I didn’t seal my floor, because it’s so easy to change up or touch up if something gets scratched. is it *******? no, but I can’t replace my floor without taking my cabinets out because my base cabinets sit on layers and layers of sub floor and vinyl floors. As long as paint has a good “tooth” to adhere to, it will stick whether it’s on furniture or floors.

Hi, I was doing some internet searching and came across this post. I too painted our *** 70’s vinyl floors in our former ****. Both the ******** & *******. They held up remarkably well. We cleaned, primed and painted them. Originally I used polyurethane over the floor paint but it yellowed. So I merely repainted with regular *** wall paint. Loved it much better. I did repaint about every 3 years in the ******* because I wanted a fresh *** look. It’s still super easy. With today’s primers and paints, painting an *** vinyl floor is super easy and affordable.

Doing some more research on this…everything I read says *** PRIMER is just fine with ***** paint and its preferable on things like wallpaper, paneling, moisture areas, etc. But you should never try to paint ***** paint over *** PAINT. Maybe it’s just something with the porch and patio paint. Goodness…good thing it’s a **** room!

Never thought of myself as a DIYer…but my children say I’m wrong! Y’just do what y’gotta do, right?! Our ensuite and also our basement floors have been painted for at least six years, and the ensuite has changed color twice. You can even “speckle” them with paint chips bought at Lowe’s. (Ask me how I know that!) The only wear I see is on the basement floor, where *** boys have drug heavy furniture across it many times. The ensuite is *******. Yes, you can paint over **** vinyl, and it can last for years! Good ***!

You are such a inspiration! ☺ As I have done most of my own interior painting for years now, hope you don’t mind me suggesting that if one uses a good ‘Primer’ there is no need to sand the flooring surface. A favourite product of mine is Zinssers Bullseye 1-2-3 (water-based) Primer. In comparison to other Primers though a bit pricey, it is ******* to use on slick or glossy surfaces! I have used it to great success on laminate, ceramic tile, metal and over ***-based paint for both interior and exterior projects. Though its primary use is to cover up water-marks and stains just follow the application instructions on the can and ensure that the paint is cured (not dry) prior to the top coat of porch paint. -Brenda- Footnote: I am NOT affiliated with Zinssers in any way.
