The best part of this floor is the fact that you don't need a saw. When we laid laminate wood floors in our old house we were constantly cutting pieces to fit around the corners and it was very time consuming. Another benefit was the fact that I didn't have to prep the concrete. I basically swept it. No mopping or anything. The spots that had paint on them (because I let my four year old daughter play Pollock while I was finishing the ceiling and walls) were easily covered up by putting extra paper down.
So far it has cost me 26 bucks. The biggest cost will be buying the polyurethane to seal it. I like the light color so I decided not to experiment with stain. I might however put a few notes that my husband and I have written to one another and a few pieces of art down before I polyurethane. I figured it would make it kinda quirky and cool.
|Step one bucket with 1/2 glue and 1/2 water. I did all the edges first.|
|the paper made edges easy since it had a straight edge to begin with|
|Place torn pieces on top of one another to add texture|
|Some area's are still wet making a drastic color difference. It blends better once dried.|
