attic flooring done

attic flooring done


Using popsicle sticks cut at random lengths. Sanded with mouse sander, used 120 then 220 grit. Mixture of 50/50 white paint /water brushed on then wiped off. Five coats of water based poly, sanded between each coat.
It is perfectly imperfect, some spaces, which I can certainly live with. I loved the floor so much I had to repaint the left room from dark to a medium purple.

I will have to make a new top step on staircase as step and the raised height of sticks do not line up. Hopefully soon be able to glue the roof on as my cats are getting used to the open roof concept and are always racing each other to get the top spot in the house. Much more sanding to do before then as well as windows in dormers.

Sounds like the floors were a lot of work, but they turned out well.  

The purple room is perfect for a teenage girl.  A bedroom in my house was painted that color when I moved in.  But I had to repaint it because the girl had left so many nail holes in the walls.

Loving the light colored floor!  And re-painting the purple room was a good choice - I like this shade much better.  :)

I had to laugh about the cats.... my Max was the same way when I was working on one of my houses without a roof.  He would sit up there and snooze while I worked on the lower rooms.  :)
