Paper Bag Flooring: New Floors From Paper Bags for under $100. Amazing.

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Ok, now I have seen everything, right? This must be the best upcycle ever.

These amazingly crafty bloggers used paper bags, Elmers Glue, wood stain, and polyurethane and transformed their floors - even directly over concrete - for under $100.  I'm super-impressed. ot that I want to do it any time soon, but my gosh, who thought of this first!? Amazing. (I looked to see who did it first, but couldn't determine. Anyone know?)

Each of these images is linked directly to the original pin. You can get all of the details by clicking the image, and then click through to the blogs.

On this one, she used a wood grain tool. Yup, that's faux wood. Can you even believe it??

And this one, too. Fake wood made with paper bags:

My only complaint is that I so wish more of the bloggers showed us photos with the furniture back in!! I understand their excitement, and probably would have done the same, snapping away during the process.

Has anyone seen these in person? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

*Please note that I don't necessarily recommend this treatments - I don't know enough about how it holds up, etc., to say that!

Well...actually...another version...one of my colleagues (GORGEOUS HOME!) used brown paper bags to "wallpaper" a hallway...he put a "finish" on it and it looked JUST LIKE LEATHER...did the brass studs, etc. Creative!! franki
