It seems simple enough and I must say it hasn't been too hard finding the paper and the right glue. But now it's time for the polyurethane varnish which has proven to be a bit more challenging to find. A direct translation of polyurethane doesn't work, it turns out that it's something else entirely here. So this morning we have been on the hunt for a product that will work. When we actually attempt to tell someone what we need it for we are met with crazy looks and lots of 'no, ma non si puo fare!' But we have no fear! We will find something, we're getting close and hopefully we will have a solution by the end of the day and by tomorrow afternoon we will be brushing on the final coat! Only time will tell. Wish us luck!
|This is what my floor looks like at the moment. I decided to go with a more even, rectangular cut of paper rather than the torn pieces like the photo above (sorry about the photo quality, it was taken with my ipad)|
|This is another view, you can see a little bit of the old floor that I still need to cover. Let's hope this works!|
