How creative are you?


Okay..... I've been having a home poker game for about 5 years, two times a week. I now have over 500 decks of bicycle cards. I I want to use them to finish the floor in the man cave but I just don't know what to do. if anybody has any ideas or suggestions I would appreciate it.

I'd do both.

I saw an article a few years ago where a homeowner had a large wooded lot, with hundreds of saplings growing on it.

Cleared the lot of saplings, Cut them into thousands of biscuits of wood rounds.

Glued these rounds to a floor in the house, sanded them a little to accent the grain.

Then poured a clear urethane in and over the rounds to make a great floor.

You might arrange the cards in several patterns this way, and clear coat it.

Only problem is if someone drops a card or two, which one do you try to pickup?

Re: How creative are you?


You could do a wall in a herringbone pattern. To add visual interest alternate the cards in a face up/face down pattern.

Another idea is to do the same herringbone in a series of framed pictures.
