I've done something crazy. And believe me, I've heard about how crazy it was. I've gotten some strange looks. Some "that will never work" comments. Some snickers and chuckles and rolling eyes. One "why don't you just do the real thing".
I ripped out my perfectly fine carpet.
I cut and painted. I glued and glued. I stained and poly'd.
And I created this.
Yes. It's a paper floor. Can you believe such a thing?
Either can I.
I love it. I LOVE IT.
It's not perfect. Neither am I.
Sometimes you have to follow your own path, even when it's the path no one else travels.
