Many of you know that I spend a good amount of my online time over at Hometalk. They’re so great to bloggers like me and I am endlessly inspired by what is submitted there! You guys also know that I am one unconventional kind of gal and, honestly, it’s gotten so bad that the idea of buying flooring out of a box at Home Depot kind of makes me shudder. Years ago (like over a decade) I was shut down in my suggestion of using plywood (cut into strips) to make inexpensive hardwood flooring ourselves – I’ll never get over paying an arm and a leg for carpet instead because my idea was just too weird. Well, I’m pretty stoked to see that I am not the only unconventional person out there and it is official: It does NOT need to come out of a box (or from Home depot) to make a gorgeous floor and you can absolutely do it yourself!

Great ideas! I was wondering- does Hometalk pay bloggers to submit their ideas, or? I’ve never made any money off my blog but would like to… Thanks!

I saw the painted floor a year or so ago on hometalk and have been looking for it all this year. So i was thrilled to see it again in your post, however when i clicked on the link it said it had expired. Have you got any more information about how she did it, or how i could find the link?
