I ran across this idea in another group and decided to implement it in our newly rennovated front room....BROWN PAPER FLOORING!  (these are not my pictures)



Doesn't that look GREAT???  I paid $12 for a roll of brown paper at Home Depot, and $4 for 8 four ounce bottles of simple white school glue.  I already had stain from another project, and I believe the polyurethane was under $25.  Add a few days of labor, and I've got a new, long-lasting, classy looking floor for under $40!  Well, it's not quite done yet....I've got to put the poly on it and that will bring out the color a little more and add the smooth finish (this is my picture, with the vacuum cord running across)

That's a really neat idea! And it really does look nice, too, like vinyl or something.

Looks nice! I'd like to do that in my laundry room in the basement.
