    We did this several years ago… it started out nice but over time ripped and became an eyesore. Going from carpet to Bpb flooring cost us in electric bills from the lack of insulation. I completely understand the investment in tools etc can make other options cost prohibitive. I worked with a home renovation ministry twice and was given hardwood floor projects both times and learned the tips and tricks and just completed 450 sq feet of hardwood in a long day over the weekend including furnature moving.
    .59c a sq foot and my vapor barrier is a billboard tarp for $20.
    I am not saying it is a bad option…. if you have the time and not the experience with power tools this is a great option.

    Can't you just roll it instead of brushing it?

    2 days and $60 is awesome. My new cabin will look great,Thank you. For heavy traffic areas I am using vinyl pieces that look like bridges over a stream. This technique was all I was missing.

    How in the crap do you remove it? Just burn your house down and collect insurance money instead of spend 658 hours to strip your floor of paper. Idk…

    No. No! NO! That looks like a joke. Your re-sale will go down the drain. You look like idiots doing that.

    I'd say between the chemicals in the paper, the glue and the 5 coats of Polyurethane, the air in that room will be immensely toxic to breathe. Not a good idea, especially for your child's bedroom!!!!!!!

    I had to rip up that garbage in someone's house and I didn't know how bad or how long it would take to get up but I got it up but lost money on it but I would never put that crap down although it lasts a long time if you properly seal it…

    If you do this in a kitchen how do you clean it? Only sweeping & no water wipe ups?

    Forget the brush – use a roller!

    It may have turned out decent, not sure since the finished product was not shown very well. But I have concerns over the paper swelling and wrinkles causing it to raise from the surface. As the paper dried, it will not lay back down flat like the lady said, not without being rolled over with a squeegee or another suitable object. And let's say it for the most part does lay flat after drying, but some sections haven't, those will be bumps on the floor and any glue underneath has hardened causing the paper to be brittle and crack (the polyurethane probably would add a little strength but the problem is the same.
    Anotber comment suggested dipping the paper (strips) in the poly and adhering it to the floor with that instead of glue (awesome idea). That idea combined with maybe a wood grain pattern roller and some darker paint to go over the paper then seal with more poly would probably turn out like a simulated hardwood flooring.

    One thing I'll say about Oats, meaning people from Oregon, is they are pretty crafty.

    You Oats did a good job with this, I'm impressed.
