She Shed Dreams: Flooring

I finally have a break from being sick and all of the random jobs that I've taken on to update you all on my shed. I laid this flooring exactly one month ago and I've done a lot since then so stay tuned for more updates! Leave a comment below if you have any questions and I'll be sure to answer them.

The shed floor is perfectly good plywood so I could've sanded it down and put a wood stain over it to cover the oil spills and wear. I would've been done in an hour tops and a can of stain costs $7.00, That's the version of this shed that I initially thought I'd do but while I was in Lowe's one day, I saw some peel and stick tile that was really affordable and pretty so I thought I'd try it out.

I chose the color Woodland Oak by Style Selections. It comes in 6x36 inch planks that are very easy to work with. I started in the corner, peeled the backing and laid the strips down. I scored the plank with a utility knife and it snapped off cleanly. I made the mistake of using the leftover piece to start the next row each time, which created a stair step pattern but I couldn't be bothered to fix it.

True to my name, it took me just one day to buy the tiles, cut them and stick them down. I bought a wood threshold to finish the look and stained it with Dark Walnut to match. I also stained the studs where the wall and the floor meet.

I love the way it turned out because it looks like a finished hardwood floor but it's a cheap alternative, wipeable and if I happen to ruin it with spills, I can replace each tile for $.98. Let me know what you think. Would you try peel and stick planks in your house?
