I have a 15' x 15' 2nd floor bedroom (1880 home) that needs new flooring. Recent visit to flooring store informed me
that I am looking at @1200.00 for either quality carpet or laminate wood look flooring approx. 222 sq. ft. total.
I love the look of painted floors. I think this can be done for less than 1200.00.
Once I take up old carpeting and pad, could I cover sub floor with plywood and then paint?
Because there are so many types of plywood, wood species, core types, manufacturing processes -
what type of plywood would give me a smooth finish and ability to resist dents etc.
If this sounds like a truly stupid idea please advise, but be kind...
