Paper Bag Floors

If you are in need of new flooring but don't have much money to spend (or even if you do) then this fits the bill! I created this floor out of brown paper, Elmers glue, stain and polyurethane. It was easy to do (albeit time consuming) and is very durable. This room is 10 X 12 and cost about $80, but future rooms will cost about $30 since I have plenty of leftover supplies.

      You'll want contractor's paper from either Lowes or Home Depot. I bought mine for $11 at HD and still have tons left.

    I just recently did my kitchen and laundry room using this technique. However, I was dead set on having white glossy floors, so instead of staining them after applying the paper, I painted them super white using Behr porch and floor paint then

    I love this...I think I might try it for my countertops....it looks like concrete.

    I have never said anything to anyone about any of the projects, but this one just blows me away! At the moment, I don't have any floors, counters or walls that I could do it to, but I will save up paper bags so that someday I can. It looks so great!!

    I painted my outside concrete and it is peeling. 😢
