Paper Sack Stairs
I've put torn paper on walls before (old Lynette Jennings fan). I decided to test durability on stair steps.
The old basement steps before finishing.
Sand the steps clean with no bumps. Tear brown grocery sacks grumpled and soaked in diluted glue. Squeegy off the glue so not drippy, lay on a clean step surface. Make sure edges overlap well. The vertic space is tricky but the fold down has to be sharp or it will wear off fast.
This floor was done 5yrs ago and looks like new. It's walked on frequently since adding a bedroom down there. Be patient and apply 2 or 3 layers of paper and several coats of urethane.
