    Can you do this on top of linoleum or do you need to remove it? How durable is it with dogs? Did you rip the bags into different size pieces and over lap? I Love This!!!)

    I have a smaller room I would love to do this but I have a few questions, can you over lap the pieces of paper and does the paper not puff up or tear when putting on the "wet" stain?? It would seem that the stain would make the paper bags tear, split or

    @ Ashley , I just did my guest bathroom floor and I am SO pleased with most of it - just what I wanted! But, there are some dark splotches, mostly on the edges of some of the individual paper pieces. :( Is it because they weren't glued down tightly
