OK! So I know by this point you’re probably thinking I’m crazy! I mean its not everyday that you hear someone say they have wallpapered their kitchen floor right? Not surprising really as lets face it, wallpaper does belong on the wall (the hint is in its name!).
However, if you haven’t already guessed by now, I like to be different with my decorating (don’t believe me? Just check out my outrageously painted Ball Mason Jar fridge!). I’ll admit to getting a tiny surge of adrenaline trying things that most people haven’t attempted before!
Have you heard of the brown paper method that some have used to create a distinct brown flooring? If not take a look at the Paper Bag tutorial on the Domestic Imperfection Blog . I used the same method to wallpaper my kitchen floor, except there was no brown bags involved! Just wallpaper, and lots of glue!
And I mean lots of glue! I bought a huge tub off eBay because I didn’t want to run out midway! Oh and some of this too to seal everything!
The original flooring was a cheap vinyl – all I did here was cover it over! If you’re concerned about whether you’ll be able to remove it when you want a change, don’t be! I actually did my floor twice because the first time I wasn’t too happy with the result (loads of air bubbles) and it was super easy to pull it all off and start again!
Can you see all those air bubbles?

How I did it
So I was going to talk you through the process, but guess what? I’ve got something even better.. a picture video tutorial!
Its really not too difficult to do so I hope this has inspired you to give it a go! The key is making sure you give it a good amount of coating and leaving it to dry the recommended amount of time! This is how it looked DAY 1.
