With the Look of Real Wood

Sometimes I get sick of my decor. I mean really sick of my decor, where I start giving things to the Goodwill without even thinking until I realize that someone is going to buy my the cast iron and enamel Dutch oven that’s been in my family for generations for fifty-freakin’-cents. This sort of thing usually happens when I’m angry, hungry, tired, or otherwise emotionally occupied. The Beard comes home to find that half our stuff is gone and the remaining stuff has been rearranged.

I have never, however, gone as far as this guy.

weird kitchen floor

Long story short, he was sick of his wooden kitchen floor but didn’t want to compromise the resale value of his flat by tearing it up or painting it. He covered it with white self adhesive vinyl and doodled all over it until he liked what he saw. This floor? It makes me wish I could draw better.

    Does the vinyl come up reasonably easily? If so, I may need to go out and get some and play with this idea.

    Of course, my drawing skills aren’t exactly mad or anything, but I’m sure I could come up with some simple stripes or something that would look attractive.

    The guy who did made the crazy cartoon floor says that it’s easy to take up and doesn’t leave any glue or marks on the original wood floor.

    Go for it!
