Hey Nikki! Gurl what a great idea... I love it! How does one go about taking a peek at the how
tos? Have you done them with fabric coverings? Such a clever idea! My son has some of those thin smaller rimmed tires that are now bald and taking up my valuable garage space... Looks like others are adding an email, so here goes email@example.com sure hope I don't get blasted with a bunch of spam :)
At The Next Cool Event, one of the exhibits was a design inspired by "I Dream of Jeannie". The idea was to create a floor that appeared to be custom tile. . . on a budget. Instead, we
used the back side of a piece of linoleum vinyl flooring that we got as a remnant. My first custom floor cloth project was done this way almost 15 years ago. With quality products, they last for years.

Any idea how long this flooring would last? Does the paint crack when rolled? I want something
in my foyer that I don't have to worry about the dirt, dogs and hubby making a mess of. Reason I beautiful rugs are still rolled up. BUT this could easily be mopped. What primer, paint and sealer did you use... suggestions please.
My husband and I love mid-century design, but it's so expensive, and sometimes difficult to find. We found this old sofa and chair at a garage sale for $75. Still had good bones, so we
took it to a reupholstery shop, and for $275, they recovered them (including fabric!). Now we have a really cool mid-century set, of much better quality than the new reproduction stuff you find today. Reupholstery isn't as expensive as you think, and we now shop with that in mind.

That is a great price on both the set and the job to redo them! I look a club chair in to have
it redone and was told it would cost me like $400+ and that is in a little country town!
