So... my very awesome husband made me a tap dance stage for our second bedroom over the weekend (I am starting classes this coming weekend). It's adorable and portable but boring looking (it's just very thick partical board hinged together). My first inclination was to paint it but I am worried that all my tapping will ruin the painting really quickly. My hubby suggested using markers to draw on it but it is such a big surface I think I would need a million markers to complete it. Does anyone have any ideas for durable decorating?

Thanks!!  Kiss

Maybe just paint/marker around the edges?  Is the floor already varnished or similar?  I bet you could do your designs then cover it with something, epoxy maybe?  The center will get scruffed up with your tap shoes which is probably the coolest design of all.  How sweet of your hubby to do that for you.  I did tap for over 20 years and most of my practicing was done in the garage on a cement floor.

I'd buy some of those stick on tiles. Thats what my dance floor is made of at my studio, and it works great. Or lay some fake wood down, like the flooring stuff, and it gives it a great look. Do not paint it! The paint will ruin the bottom of your shoes, I've done it myself "/
