Hardwood Floors From Plywood??? YES!!!
We started by ripping up the carpet and pad to expose the sub floor, which was in great condition.
- 8' wide sheets of 5/8" plywood (Lowe's)
- Minwax wood stain (Lowe's)
- Black roofing fabric (Lowe's)
- Clear coat polyurethane (Lowe's)

Just gorgeous! I have laminate in all of my house (except kitchen and baths), and I will never have it again. If it gets scratched (and that happens--a lot), it stays scratched. (You can "hide" scratches, but the surface is now compromised.)
I'd rather have beat-up real wood any day than all the laminate you can give me.
THIS is exactly what I'm going to do to my whole house (sans bathrooms, kitchen--tile).
