Would you do this to your floor?

OK – this is the craziest thing that I’ve seen in awhile, but with an office remodel coming up in my future (and a tiny budget to accomplish it with), I have to admit – I am intrigued.

Imagine it … replacing the flooring in one of your bedrooms for about $70. No, you didn’t just get one heck of a deal by getting carpet or flooring remnants, you have used kraft paper to cover the floor of your room. See the video here.

I have to admit – in the morning when I’ve dreamed about this all night and come to the conclusion that I am totally crackers – I will likely be discouraged. But we’re going to replace our carpeting upstairs anyway at some point in the next five years. I can totally get away with this and see if it works.

  1. Hmmm….I watched the video – it’s interesting. I kinda like the look afterwards…but I would want to try it out in a test area first before I did a whole room. And – is the stuff they used to coat it fume-y?

  2. Thanks for the link…though I’m not sure about the crazy thing. 🙂 To be honest, I thought it was just a stop-gap measure when we did it in our first house. It was all we could afford in the finished attic and stairs. Two things changed my mind: Everyone commented on it and loved it and it held up incredibly well- even on the stairs! We sold it to people who loved it, too, and weren’t planning on changing it.

    Be careful…you might find you never want to get that carpet…
