Brown paper bag floor

Brown Paper Bag Floors... I do believe I might do this in my bar/family room... seems appropriate to have a paper floor! This is just an amazing decorating technique, very easy, very cheap, and very effective! Could also use technique on walls but because the walls can end up being darker than I like, the sensible option is to wait until the paper is completely dry and just do a simple wash over top with a thinned latex in warm pale yellow, then dry-sponge an antiquing glass lightly over top to accentuate the look of old leather. How To Make a Rustic Leather Floor from Paper Bags Tools Needed • Paper bags, contractor's paper or a roll of brown Kraft paper, enough to cover your entire floor, with some overlapping. • Gallon of water based polyurethane • Scissors • Old work clothes • Strong Knees and Back! First off, put up the “Room Closed” sign. Even better if you can keep it closed off for 24 hours or more. Now, clean the floor thoroughly… TSP is a great idea here! It is normally used on glossy paint surface, but will work well for these purposes. Rinse well. Let dry. Tear your brown paper into irregular sections in a size that is easy to handle. It is important to tear, and not cut, as that will give the natural edge you need for the look. Only use the scissors to create a straight edge on some pieces to line up against cabinets, walls, or a change in flooring. Now crumple each torn piece tightly, then smooth out. This will give it texture. Pour a small amount of polyurethane onto the floor where you will place your first piece, and smooth it out with a brush, although I preferred to use my hands. Lay the piece of paper down, add a little poly to the top of the paper, and smooth down. Kind of like decoupage! Now continue to lay down papers each one slightly overlapping the other. Smooth out bubbles as you go. Your hand is the best tool for this! If you find bubbles forming underneath as the poly starts to dry, poke the bubble with a pin, add a little more poly, and smooth down. Once you finish covering the whole floor with paper, let the poly dry. Recoat the poly once each hour until you have 4 to 6 coats of poly protecting your floor. This should be allowed to dry hard, at least overnight, longer if possible. When you notice the floor getting dull, clean and add a maintenance coat of poly. Repairs are easily made with another torn piece of paper bag laid right over the existing treatment. Seal with poly. Damp mop when necessary, and it should last you years! Definitely not your neighbors floor, and all for the price of some polyurethane and some hard work!
Can you believe these are brown paper bag floors? I like her idea for stairs, too.

Picture Hanging How-To Unfurl a length of painters' tape (ours was 1 1/2 inches wide) horizontally across a wall, making sure tape is level. Determine nail placement for frames above the midline by measuring from the bottom of a frame to its bracket. (If the frame hangs on wire, pull the wire taut, and measure accordingly.) For frames below the midline, measure from the top of the frame to the bracket. Use additional strips of tape, positioned vertically, to create even spaces between pictures arranged next to each other. When all frames are in place, remove tape from wall.

Hallway photo wall idea
For the hallway! Picture gallery wall. This is a great way to hang pictures in a creative, fresh way. Create a horizontal line, two or three inches wide. Hang pictures above the line or below the line to make a fun effect. I love that in the example all of the picture frames are black and matching. They also used all black and white pictures to really make it coordinate!
Mark a horizontal line and hang picture frames on either side of the line...for the hallway maybe? Awesome idea!
