    Kraft Paper Floor

    I started working on the floor about January 2016. I kept expanding to more areas of my house till I had completely removed all the wall-to-wall carpet and replaced it with Kraft Paper Flooring by July 2016. I had a couple of mis-haps where I had to re-do the paper while I was moving a lot of the furniture around, but since I have put everything back where it belongs, 7 months ago, I have not had any problems or had to re-do any of it. To be on the safe side, I put felt pads on the bottom of all the furniture, including the bookcases, so I can just slide them around for cleaning and I put a plastic matt under my wheeled office chair. Hope that answers your questions!

    Kraft Paper Floor

    Hi Mrs. Merwin:I did consider marine/spar varnish but since it is oil based, it would take too long to dry. I only have one entrance door to my house and two cats so I needed something that would dry quickly. The polyurethane dried so that I could walk on it in about an hour. I also considered one thick coat of epoxy but there again I think that would have been a mistake due to the drying time, the expense and no option for a satin finish. So far, the floor has held up really well to spills even if it gets soaked with liquid, it will be cloudy for a while, then clears again when it dries. I just clean the floor with Swiffer wet & dry products and it's all working really well. No regrets! I'm even considering ripping out the last bit of laminate flooring I have in the kitchen ...

    Altoids Tin Palette

    Wow! thanks for this instructable. I've never thought of doing something like this with computer keyboard keys. I suppose you could also use the top of the tin for mixing the colours. Well done! (By the way, no need to apologize for your English skills, they are almost flawless.)

    T-Shirt Plant Holder

    Hay! I should make this to go with my "Tree Cosy", which I made out of braided muslin to cover a dead limb of my Russian olive tree. Thanks!
