Leather Floor?

Nope, it's brown paper bag flooring...that looks like leather! Google it.

The boys have been re-doing our bedrooms. Fixing & painting walls, new flooring & trim etc.

This is what our finished floors look like -- though the trim is not done yet etc.

We rather like it.

We have already noticed that it is considerably warmer than our laminate floors.

We'll have to live on it to see how durable it is, but testimonials we read say that it is very durable. We'll give it a go! If it scratches, we can always add another coat of finish ... or cover it with rugs, lino etc.

At less than $100 per room, it was worth the try. Loads of experience. Tons of fun. A learning experience.

... And learning & lovin' it, is what we're all about here at Live'n'Learn Farm.

That looks neat! What did you top coat it with? and how many times?

Hey Melanie! How are you & yours?

We used polyurethane, specifically "Emulsion, Satin - Basic Coatings" (Advanced Oil & Water Wood Floor Finish.) - 5 coats ... 2x/day.

I really love the color of this floor. Can you tell me what color of stain you used? Thank you :)

No stain. The color is that of the paper we used. Some do stain first though...
