I need to put new flooring in several rooms of my house. The subfloor is plywood. I'm considering floor paint on some of them, but am wondering about other inexpensive options. I found this link about paper mache floors:

That is very helpful, thanks. Painted floor is certainly an option we're strongly considering.

For durability you may want to consider epoxy instead of paint, or even the new line of paint from Pittsburgh, which of course for the life of me I cannot recall the name of.. Pittsburgh just acquired the company that makes this new paint last year, and it is almost as durable as epoxy but for half of the price, and unlike most epoxies, it is water based. I've used it on a shop floor right beside epoxy, and it is very difficult to tell the two apart.
BTW if you are worries about off gassing with polyurethane, there are very good waterborne polys today.
To love the world is to want to know it. To know the world we must accept it. To accept it we use reason to understand it. Never should we shun reason or condemn it.
I'm all tasted up for a BLT! This tiny ad wants a monte cristo!
