I googled up some pro and cons but my gut feeling is that paint over vinyl won't hold up well on a floor. Have you (or do you know someone who) painted over a vinyl floor?

You could do the peel and stick tile. I don't think the paint would hold up.

Thanks, Ann. I also see that using TSP to clean it first supposedly de-glosses the vinyl, making it better able to accept the primer/paint. I think I'll try this in a tiny bathroom and if it works well move on to other rooms.

Let us know how it works out, Lake.
And your method. Where are you learning how to do this?

I have seen it work & also not. So it can be done.

Think it would accept the primer better if you scuffed it up first with sandpaper or something?

That's what we always did. Some floors just seem to accept the paint better than others.
