Stained plywood/subfloor/photos added - Page 2

post #21 of 24
Well this was an inspriring thread. Last night after reading this I ripped up our 16yr old carpet
It is plywood underneath, however it is nasty under there. Lots of stains and pounds of dirt. seriously POUNDS!

So I moved the 2yr old laminate from a section of the main floor up to my room (and it was just enough with one plank to spare!).
Teh entire main floor is going ot be that bag floor that someone linked :
which means I can rip up the yucky tile in my kitchen
and hopefully I can find some decent cheap carpet for dd's room. and voila, the house will be refinished for hopefully under $100 (well probably more if I have to buy carpet).

oh and I would like to make a ground cloth if I can.

I'm gonna need some pictures of that bag floor!!! I was at the grocery store yesterday and they quoted me $.08 a bag. Not sure how many bags I'd need...but there was a figure for me to get started on some math. I thought I might make a scrap/test piece of wood from some stuff we have in the garage.

Anyhow, YAY!!! for you....

If I'm remembering correctly one of those articles that PP linked to it said you could use the brown paper on the roll like you would buy for painting, might want to price that also.

thats what I was going to try and buy, it seem s more cost efficient. But failing that..horse feed comes in bags, the inside layer is plain brown. Im pretty sure I could ask around for some freebies.
I will try to post pictures. I am very bad about updating
