I have some leftover vinyl flooring and my husband is talking of throwing it away but I know there has to be some wonderful projects to do with it so I need your help. Thank you in advance....Nancy
I know it's not "crafty" but I have pieces of leftover vinyl flooring in the cabinets underneath my kitchen and bathroom sinks. Keeps the wood new if water should drip.
You can flip it over and paint the backside to make a floor cloth. I haven't ever tried this but I see it suggested every so often and have seen some really neat ones over time.
Use it to line your cabinet drawers and shelves--easy to just wipe clean. If you don't need a rug, cut it to placemat size and paint or stencil the back for some kitchen or patio placemats--be sure to put a sealer on after you paint it. Luvs
I cut mine into 6 inch strips and slid it under my fance to keep the weeds from growing there. Did it over 20 years ago and it's still effective.
Lefty - I actually buy small remnants to paint on. It is very easy. From experience though, I would say to paint the entire piece you are planning to use on the backside with ordinary house paint, whatever color you like as a background. Then trace a pattern on or freehand. Once finished, give it a couple of good coats of polyurethane and wa-la, you have a floorcloth. My friend once cut the pieces in the shapes of snowmen and painted them for ornaments.
Thank you so much for your help, I can't wait to get started. I'm not much on freehand so I will have to get a stencil or copy a pattern. Thanks again, you are a great help. I will get busy looking for a stencil........Nancy
