Since being featured in the April edition of Cottages and Bungalows, I’ve heard from a number of people who’ve either taken the leap and ripped up their carpet, replacing it with paper like we detailed in our DIY Paper Floor/Alternative to Wood Flooring video, or are planning to.
Rachel from Lovely Crafty Home has transformed two sets of stairs and an upper hallway so dramatically, I just had to share her photos:
These stairs to her basement was her first project, and the difference was amazing.
But her upper stairs and hallway are the most dramatic, as she added a walnut stain to the paper before the polyurethane.
I love the different look this creates, and I think I’m going to add stain to the floor I want to do in our master bedroom.
Great job, Rachel!
Has anyone else used this flooring technique? I’d love to share your photos, too!
