Paper bag flooring living room 2013

I got tired of my butt-ugly living room floors back in 2013 and decided to do something about it.  I had ripped out the old carpet which I could no longer get clean this is what I was left with.  
Testing the small bathroom using paper bag flooring a couple of days prier, I decided to do the same to the living room floor.

Starting in the corners. Pieces of construction paper covered in Elmer's Glue.

Waiting for the floor to dry.

All dry and ready for a thin layer of Minwax Stain.  

Stained and covered in thick layer of water based Polyurethane.

Speeding up the drying process with a fan.

Time for the other side of the living room.

Here you can really see the difference before the stain.

Dried, stained and covered in Polyurethane.

Finished floor.

I am very happy with it.  It has now been 4 years.  

I'm still thinking of doing the rest of the downstairs.

Paper bag flooring test in small bathroom 2/28/2013

Construction Paper
Minwax Stain (cherry)
Elmer's Glue
Water based Polyurethane

I decided to test this out in my 1/2 bathroom.

I tore up pieces of construction paper.  I swear it was in a neat little pile, but my pussy decided it was a new toy.

I mixed Elmer's Glue with water, brushed the solution on each piece of construction paper, and then put it on the floor.  I won't be able to do it this way in the living room since it is concrete.  So I will use straight Elmer's Glue.

First area dry.

Covered all of the bathroom

Covered with a layer of Minwax Stain.  I then wiped it off.  It takes very long to dry and it stinks. Wiping if off speeds it along quite a bit.

Now, covered with Polyurethane.

Finished with the help of a fan.

I was really pleased with it and decided to go ahead and do the living room.

Visit to parents, broiling meat, car wash and Bagworm Moths 03/18/17

Mom didn't feel all that great so I didn't stay long.

By 10 AM I was on my way back home.   I did stop in Warrenton to get some groceries and some $2 a gallon gas. :)

Broiled some thick and thin pork chops when I got home.  That will take care of meat for the next

It was so nice outside that I decided to go wash the "Pumpkin".


Art Smith, owner of  "KillerWaxx", had sent me some Pineapple Express Shine.  This stuff is awesome.  The paint was so shiny and thick that it seemed that you could stick your finger in the paint.



I did the work 3 hours ago and now it is raining cats and dogs.

Before going inside for the day, I checked my bushes for Bagworm Moths.  I thought I had gotten them all off of the bushes back in October last year but it looks like I missed some.  Most of those are too high up for me to get to.  I'm thinking I will get rid of all the bushes once it warms up and start over.


Bagworm Moth

These are from October.  I picked them from the bushes and even from under the window in the front of my home.  The glue that they are attached with is so strong that I had to use pliers to get them off.

You can already see the damage they have done.  Everything looks brown and dead.  Rat Bastards!


I think I will order some Empress Trees.  The Bagworm Moths don't seem to like them much.

TGIF 3/17/17

It's finally Friday.  It has been a long week.

My co-worker again called in sick yesterday, just 30 minutes before he was supposed to report to work.  Thanks to another co-worker, I did get out of there a little after 7 PM.

Then it was, hurry go home and hurry and go to sleep.  LOL  That never works with me.  The more I think about needing to go to sleep, the longer I stay awake.

On Friday another person comes in after me in the afternoon.  I was so happy to see her.  As she walked in, I walked out, an hour and a half before I usually get off.

A third co-worker, bless her heart, will work in my place on Sunday.  This way I will get two days off back to back.  This is awesome and it's been a very long time.  I'm sure I will be in a much better mood when I return to work on Monday morning. :)

So, I will get a good nights sleep tonight,  Get up early in the morning and go visit my mom and pop.

After I get back home I'll do laundry, cook for the week, and iron, all the while knowing that I have another day off.  Did I already say that this is awesome??
