It is difficult to photograph these floors. The color changes with the light and the time of day. It is a warm, stone-ish color (Flagstone, by Martha Stewart), but the clear polyurethane (which is actually amber colored) changes it a bit. I don't mind. I used a regular flat paint with a satin poly specifically made for floors. The finished product is thick and glossy, but not shiny. It feels good under my feet, and makes for excellent ice skating if wearing socks. So far clean up has been a breeze.
Once I finished the floors, we realized that the wall color was a little off. All of a sudden it was too bright and too green, so I used Martha Stewart's Garden Shed to tone things down. It sort of looks the same as the floor in these pictures, but it's actually quite a bit lighter. And now my kitchen perfectly matches my blog design (not on purpose, I guess these just happen to be my favorite colors?).
You can see our kitchen's transformation starting with the major before photos here, after I painted the cabinets here, and then once I put up the backsplash here.
