    Jolaine, Could you give step by step instructions, what you used also how you did the grout line what to use and how to do it. How does the finished look happen. I just love it and I need to know everything it doesn't show on my computer. Thank you gail

    This is really great! Can't think of a less expensive way to do a floor and it looks great!

    Pam Lewandowski - I used painters tape to make my "grout" lines. It was a little time consuming but the look is so worth it. I did my floor 3 1/2 years ago and I can honestly tell you it still looks amazing. I have moved furniture, damp mopped it and I also have 2 dogs that are all over it. I truly believe that it is all in the amount of polyurethane you coat it with. I went over mine 7 times but I did let it dry completely between each layer. You will love the look and can make it whatever color you want. Thank you for your interest.

      @Carolyn What a fantastic idea. We have old linoleum in our utility room. I've thought about painting it, but really love the paper bag technique. Might have to give that a thought!!!
