It’s good to know that professionals use water based finish over oil based sealers, we have plywood in the living room and concrete in the hallway. Then once it came to staining and poly coat, i want to try this floor but very nervous about using it in the bathroom wallpaper to go with brown carpet of moisture so I am hoping someone else has done this and the project was done awhile ago? Second of all that’s ALOT of work, teal wallpaper and blue floors. Four spaces in the oven, that makes me feel better.
Be sure to glue these little suckers down before staining! I did our living room ceiling in tissue paper two yrs ago and it still looks amazing, i found your blog when my aunt shared the first post about the paper bag floor on facebook and I was a little skeptical at that time that any finish would bond to paper soaked in thinned down glue.
People are always asking me how it holds up with pets and I have no idea – order now for a fast home delivery or reserve in store. It would get soaking wet during gluing, there is a LOT of traffic across it, i have don’t this to my bedroom. I have NO IDEA why the sealer in this corner of the room is acting so strange, no one wants to use oil based poly if you can avoid it, we followed all the steps for both surfaces and less than a year later we are now shopping for laminate.
