Ok, I've always had my father or brother fix things in my home. Well this weekend I took a trip to the dollar store. I found 12x12 Vinyl self-adhesive tiles in all different designs. For a box of 27 tiles I paid $9. I got 2 boxes. I redid my whole bathroom floor (which was all torn up sheet vinyl) in about 3 hours. I was sooo happy! You can't beat a new floor for $18 bucks (though technically it cost me 9 since I only needed one box... now what to do with the leftover box..)

That's awesome!

We need to replace the flooring in our upstairs bathroom... It smells HORRIBLE from the little boys that shared it who lived here previously....and there was a leak up there that DH didn't notice (He's the only one who uses that "THRONE" hehe) so now it's just gross. Did I mention it's CARPETED?! ewww!

Anyway, we need to pull up the carpet and put on something! It is a SMALL bathroom so I'm thinking we'll only need like.... 6 tiles. LOL

That's awesome! I have been doing little projects around my place that Dh just doesn't have time to get to right now. It feels so good when you get them done.

Unfortunately i can't because it's opened but my thoughts were keep a few for any repairs that may need to be done in the future and use the rest to make a small "floored" area for the cats litter box and food bowls (they are kept in the basement). Or just stash them all for future use lol

I say keep them around for spares or little projects. I got a very nice desk at a garage sale, but the top looked horrible. We sanded it down and got it attached nice. I covered it with same type of tiles, they have a slate look. and put new moldings on the edges its beautiful now and all for about 50 bucks (this originally was at least a thousand dollar desk. Now its a fixture in my home, i use it for my bills and mail desk.

Great job!!

How about using the extra tiles inside the cabinets under your sink? We used some lleftover linoleum in the cabinet under our bathroom sink and it has worked out wonderfully. :)

I would just save them. Something those sticky tiles can peel or if you get a scratch or something you just replace it.

Good job!

Make sure you wipe moisture off the floor, or the peel and stick tiles will lift. BTDT..lol
