Our popular brown paper flooring original video (that has spawned a lot of copies!) and our FAQ answering the many questions we get on it led us to create this follow-up video to provide even more information on how it wears as well as answering more questions.
More than four years ago Brian and I tore up the disgusting carpet in our daughter’s room and covered the particle board subfloor with brown craft paper. While we worked on it, we shot footage for a video so other people could easily follow exactly what we’d done. We thought a few thousand people might want to see it, not a few hundred thousand!
Since then it’s become one of AOC’s most popular posts and has generated so many questions I created a whole Brown Paper Flooring FAQ page. One of the things people want to know – and for good reason – is how well do paper floors hold up under foot traffic.
So we’ve made a follow-up video where we revisit our floors to see how they’ve held up after more than four years. We also look at issues like area rugs and sun fading, and something I did wrong that is now causing a problem. And at the end of the video I answer the most common questions from the hundreds we’ve gotten on YouTube and this blog. I hope you enjoy it!
