If you guessed screenprinted art paper, then you are definitely a DIY design expert. When Rachel and her husband couldn't agree on whether to cover their paint splattered plywood bathroom floor with tile or linoleum, Rachel decided to try a low-cost DIY using a favorite screenprint pattern. She papered the floor with thick lining paper and waterproof PVA, then tiled the floor with thick art paper already screenprinted with the pattern. The last step was laying down three coats of the waterproof PVA to seal the floor, though Rachel is considering adding a layer of boat varnish on top as the PVA sometimes clouds after contact with water.

Check out Rachel's blog post about the floor for more photos of this fabulous bathroom project. Well executed and unique, this inexpensive project has a design impact far beyond its cost, and certainly serves as an inspiration to other DIYers looking to create one of kind applications in the home.
