It’s Okay…Let’s Patch Things Up

I noticed the first hole in our paper floor today. Well, make that two holes.

I’m okay with that, though. You know why?

Reason number 1:

Almost any type of flooring would have been scratched with all of the stuff we have moved in and out recently. (New couch and loveseat in, old sectional out, electric fireplace in.)

Reason number 2:

It was super easy to patch!

Just slap down some more brown paper and cover it with poly and you’re done.

Good as new! Just make sure you put between 4-6 coats of poly over the top of the patch and there shouldn’t be any problems. Have these two small holes changed my opinion of our super awesome brown painter’s paper floor? Nope. It has held up amazingly well. I really wish our whole house had this type of flooring!

    • Lani, You can visit this post to get directions for making your own paper floor. We have had our floor for about 10 months now and it has been amazing. Not only is it cheap to make, but it can be repaired if you happen to put a scratch in the surface. I definitely can’t say that about our laminate flooring! One of the the most important steps is putting the last 4-6 coats of polyurethane over the entire floor for protection! If you have any more questions, be sure to shoot them on over! Thanks for reading!
