Those floors are amazing. My favorite so far.

@ryttu3K I've considered covering it with glass, but honestly I haven't had any issues with it. I used semi gloss paint and it wipes clean easily. @Rico Tenore, thank you for providing me with that perspective and I'm so very sorry I caused you to waste your time. Namaste my friend.

Thank you for all the kind comments! I more or less used this method:

Fair warning, it's not a "day" task. It took me a full school day to tape and get the first coat, then another two to get the remaining 4 coats on. I wasn't trying to achieve a stone effect so I went one color at a time and didn't blend. I'm still working on touch ups where the paint bled or where the tape pulled the base color off -- I started in July. That makes me a complete slacker. But I'm so pleased with the results that I would do it all over again. Thanks again for the kind comments!

My dining room is 9'1" wide--although perhaps a bit longer. Regardless, I feel your pain. I would build/buy some sort of hutch for the dishes where that red art is and get rid of the bookshelf that is taking up a foot of space from the narrow side and center that table in the room. Added bonus, you could seat 4 if you needed to.

Real Life Backyard Chicken Advice from Experienced Chicken Owners

We have them in a few rooms in our house. I painted the ones in my daughters room sky blue, and am ignoring the ones in the Dining room (as they too fall into the someday category). However one night I couldn't stand it anymore and started ripping them off my bedroom ceiling...and as it turns out there was an oak ceiling underneath. It was beautiful and I have no idea why anyone would ever cover it up. Maybe what's underneath isn't so scary.
