This old painted plywood floor was transformed to look like real marble. Suzanne painted fifty original works of art in the form of  
    two foot squares and twenty of two inch squares hand painted on the original plywood.  Note that the dividing lines between the squares
    are hand drawn in.
BEFORE - old plywood floor.
After two base coats and more sanding.

Each small and large square was individually taped off and  painted.
