  1. Flooring
    I've been collecting wine corks to make flooring out of. I can't find much info on how to do it though. My plan is to cut them into 1/4 inch rounds, stick them onto contact paper for easier layout, spread an adhesive on the subfloor, place the 'tiles' on the adhesive, and and then seal with...

    We just tore out all our kitchen cabinets, flooring, and a wall to boot.
