My friend tried this brown bag flooring idea, she ripped up all the lilenolem in her bathroom and..
.. it didn't work. She went back and reread it and saw it won't work on concrete or cement subflooring.
She's so pissed,ranting about being careful when you begin a project.

Lmao. Yes, I find it funny because had she read it she would have figured it out.

Anyway, do you have any projects gone wrong?

here is what she was attempting:

when i go back over (she is my neighbor) i will snap a picture of what she did. lmao.

its a mess. her husband is going to be so pissed. He wasn't onboard with her doing it at all in the first place.

Yea. I think. That's what she called it.
It looks really nice, but not possible for concrete and cement subflooring.
