What do you think created this floor?
You would never guess this was a recycled floor huh?
This is the faux leather flooring technique created with brown paper bags!!
You can find specific details on how to create this amazing home project here.
all you need to get started is
- Paper bags or a roll of brown Kraft paper from the postal supply aisle (enough to cover your entire floor, with some overlapping)
- Gallon of water based polyurethane (I recommend Minwax Polycrylic, or Minwax Fast Drying Polyurethane)
- Old work clothes
First you clear out the room you want to improve. Wash the floor best as possible and start tearing up the bags in irregular shapes. Crumble up the paper cuttings to give it some texture and then spread them out flat. Using polyurathane, spread a small amount on the floor, place a peice of the paper into it wihile it is wet and then put more on top, smoothing it as you go. Continue to lay peices down, smooth out the bubles and use a straight edge to trim around the walls. For finishing techniques, click the link above and let your imagination RUN!!
