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.

All of the rooms in our house have great, old hardwood floors. So when we first walked into the laundry room to find that the floor had been painted over and then scratched heavily by a
dog of the previous owner we knew there was only one solution - paint it!!
We were inspired by an old restaurant in Talladega to go with very large checkerboards. We hope you enjoy the transformation! Each cherkbaord is 3ft by 3ft - we topped it off with 2 coats of poly urethane.

I've never been a fan of checkerboard, but it looks nice.
