Paper Bag Floors — 5 Comments

  1. I’ve seen wallpaper made out of comic books and Sunday Newspaper comics before in a kid’s room.

    I’ve read about someone that wallpapered a room with the Orchestral Score sheet music from one of Beethoven’s Symphonies. That was surprisingly attractive and tastefully done. The patterns sheet music create on a wall have a unity to them that doesn’t seem as “busy” as one might expect.

    I’ve even seen some amazing mosaics made out of post-it notes!

    I’ve never considered papering a floor before. Interesting.

    Imagine making floor mosaics out of different colored pieces of paper instead of different colored ceramic tiles. Tedious to be sure, but the final result might be astounding, and still very inexpensive.

    Good post. This seems like an idea that Dan Phillips would come up with.

  2. Great idea. I’ll read it again and try it on some of the concrete floor area in our old dairy barn.

    Thanks once again….

    and by the way here’s an interesting site that’s got a lot of the application of commercial sandbag technology together with their mechanized mixing.

    This is their mixing technology:

  3. I wonder if anyone’s tried this yet with earth floors? Do a small room as an experiment. It would be easy to scrape off if it didn’t work out.
