This is despite the fact that adults who drink get approximately 10 per cent of their calories from alcohol. Goodbye gross carpet hello beautiful wood floors! You might have to make a visit to your nearby composite decking shop.
I have a question, though. Did you leave any sort of gap to allow for expansion and contraction of the wood? I would love to do this, but worry about that. Some of the gaps are a bit bigger and some are smaller because some of the pieces were not perfectly straight.
I think the bigger gaps give it a little characeter. So far, the floors are still absolutely beautiful! This tutorial can be really helpful for installing plywood flooring, it sure looks easy after reading the above post but i am sure you must be knowledgeable enough to do this without any mistakes.
Your floors are b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!!!! Question, how long did this take you both, did I read that you did it over a week-end? Just wondering about applying the Poly, etc…timeframe estimates. It took us about three days ALL day. We put the poly on, waited four hours, light sanding, put coat 2 on, waited four hours, then we put four more coats on sanding lightly before the last coat. It monotonous but so worth it!! If you want to take a great deal from this article then you have to apply these techniques to your won web site.
Hi there to all, how is everything, I think every one is getting more from this web page, and your views are pleasant in favor of new viewers. Also visit my web-site — hardwood floors.
Hi there, every time i used to check web site posts here in the early hours in the break of day, since i enjoy to find out more and more. Look into my web page — treatment for toenail fungus. I am curious about the nailing process. What size and style nails did you use, and did you stick to the pattern shown in your first diagram? Again, lovely floors and thanks!
We rented a finish pneumatic nailer gun and it was a lot of fun to use! We did not fill in the nail holes. We just stained over them and I think it just adds character to the floor. We all walk on them with bare feet and it is very smooth. We absolutely love our floors. Are you thinking of laying wood floors? It was a lot of work but oh so worth it.
I really want to do every room. Hi This looks really great! I was just wondering about spaces or gaps between the plywood strips. I am just worried about dirt being trapped between the plywood planks. We tried to put nickels in between each board.
Some gaps were too big for the nickels. We vacuum and it seems to do the job. Your floors look great! I never knew plywood could look so nice! I think of plywood as being kind of soft, relative to traditional hardwood floors.
Do you have more dinks, deep scratches, etc. With kids and a dog, they are still looking great! I really want to stain all my light oak floors the same dark stain as my family room. Hi Linda, I love this idea! Do you have any pictures of the nailed down ends close up? Wondering how it looks.
Also did you use a sander? We love our floors. They are holding up very well. I do not have a close up of the nails. If you send me your e-mail I can send a picture to you.
We bought A grade plywood that did not need to be sanded. We did do a light sanding after installation before staining. We did that with a hand sander. We just butted each board against the previous board and nailed it down. So far it is holding up well. I think my favorite part is that your whole family works on these projects together.
Have a great Christmas! Hi Linda I love the floor, and after laying to hardwood floors for my parents and knowing the cost,even doing the work myself, I love the idea of the plywood floors, I'm cureently building a small cabin up behind my parents house,for when I visit, and was considering hardwood floors,expensive,lol, then I came across your blog and love the floors, but after doing numerious google searches I can't seem to find a good how to on staining the plywood, What stain did you use, oil or water based and same for condioner and poly coat.
We absolutely love them and they are holding up so well. Then we used Minwax Red Mahogany water based stain. I just put it on with a clean cloth and my husband followed behind wiping the excess off. The polyurethane was Varathane water based.
We brushed on six coats. Let me know if I can answer any more questions. Good luck with your floors. OMG I love your floor! Also did you sand the cut edges before laying floor and did you glue them to the subfloor before nailing them into place?
Did you nail them at a angel or straight into the floor? Do you think this would work for countertops as well giving them a sort of butcherblock look? We did not sand the cut edges. We do glue to the subfloor before we nailed. Nailed them straight in. Not sure about the countertops. Your floor is incredible! I think your answer is really splendid.
LOVE the way it looks. I truly appreciate you getting all over off that floor!!! The only thing we would have done differently is we would have to cut the plywood with a table saw instead of the circular saw we had at the time. We bought a table saw later and life would have been so much easier and the cuts would have been perfectly straight!!
We have small gaps but I can honestly say there has been no problem whatsoever. So happy we did it!!! I love the look of this! Just one quick question…what was the foam insulation board on the materials list used for?
I don't see it anywhere in the instructional section. We love our floors! The foam insulation board was used to support the plywood sheets while we were cutting them. In your pattern diagram in step 5 — was there a reason you did not alternate the short pieces from one side of the room to the other rather than having long boards all on one side of the room?
Also, the board lengths do not seem to all add up to 19'. You have explained in more detailed. Thank you for that. And did I understand right you had to stain asap. Anything and how long have you have them now wear and tear. Any upkeep things I need to know. Hope you get this and private email me quilting nemont. I loooove your floors. Ever since we moved in I have been wanting to get rid of this gross carpet…now its 3 years later lol. A couple of questions: How do you clean your floors?
Your floor looks fantastic! I have a couple of questions though. I'll apologize ahead of time if someone has already asked. Did you use the foam board under the plywood over the subfloor? And did you use glue and nails both? We did not use foam board under the plywood. Yes, we used glue and nails. I love how your floor turned out!
It looks like it has been about 2. How is it holding up? Were you concerned about the longevity of the floor with the laminate breaking down over time? I love this idea and told my husband about it, but he thinks that the plies will blister over time.
I'd love to know what your thoughts are on the subject. These are gorgeous and the tutorial is fantastic. I love your blog!! Thank you for having the linking party. I really appreciate any help. Do you live in Raleigh? I live in Apex. Maybe one day you can teach me how to not fear all those big bad tools!!
Do you mind sharing which brand bead board you used. I have no idea what brand they were. Very easy to find at any home improvement store. Thanks for the info!.. I am going to add beadboard under my cabinets, paint it a darker shade of sage green.
I have, wood, wood, wood, need something to change it up. The molding is just what I need. I plan on just shooting finishing nails to secure mine. I have discovered the magic of a saw, so I plan on doing it myself.
What is the sound that Tim Allen made? Your kitchen is beautiful, and it makes me tired thinking of all those kids. You wear a cape. Then she painted everything a bright white and accessorized with apple greens. Hope you enjoy your stay […]. April 18, By Linda. Well, the beadboard is kicking our butts! I need to clarify that we the LOML and myself are novices when it comes to trim. But we are losing the battle of the trim and beadboard backsplash in our kitchen redo.
We were planning on covering the tile backsplash with the beadboard paneling and adding a little trim to complete the ends. In two places, we were going to bring out the beadboard past the tile and onto the wall to the end of the countertop like this:. Our tile stops where the cabinet ends. So we had to bring the wall out to be even with the tile.
Does that make sense?? Then we were going to glue the beadboard to the tile and plywood. Well, the wall did not cooperate! If one end stuck, the other end popped out.
So we scrapped the plywood idea! I painted the outlet with lipstick, put the paneling in place and pressed. Then we took the paneling off, and the lipstick told us exactly where to cut the holes. We also added outlet spacers so the outlet cover would fit with the paneling.
FIFTH and the funnest is to accessorize!! I got the lamp at WalMart along with the sweet plant, and the calendar I got from a friend. A little before and after of the lamp below. Then I sprayed with two coats of Valspar clear gloss. Comments Dennis and Pam says: April 18, at 2: Linda Home is Where My Heart is says: April 18, at 1: I love how you did your new kitchen..
