the floor with wood stain prior to applying additional coats of
polyurethane. The torn areas of the paper absorb more stain and add a
weathered, natural look to the finished floor.
Create decorative borders on the flooring with stamps and paint. Purchase stamps created for stamping walls. Dip them in an oil-based paint of your choice and apply to the floor. Allow to dry completely before coating with polyurethane.
Kraft paper is available in colors other than basic brown. Choose one color or combine several. Keep in mind the torn edges will be darker than the original paper color.
Cut the paper into standard shapes instead of tearing. This will give the look of stained concrete or tile. Cut into equal-size squares. Make allowances for the overlap when laying them to keep the floor symmetric. Use one color of paper or alternate colors for a checkerboard effect. Or, cut a design from a contrasting piece of paper and apply over the faux leather-finished floor, such as a yellow star burst as a focal point in the center of the room.
