How To Turn Wood And Rock Into A Phenomenal Floor Cheap

Updated on November 24, 2010

So What Do You Think?

OK It's Almost Done

Who would have thought rock and wood could make this floor or anything even close. With these two products and some sealer this floor could be anything you and your family can imagine or create. I am obviously a horse lover, hence the picture is of my favorite.

Different designs, colors, and pictures can personalize this room to where the owners will never want to move. That could be a great gift and selling incentive for all you real estate agents and floor contractors.

When I'm done I will tell you another way of doing this that will just totally leave you speechless. It did me and I'm the one who thought of it

Yes I know it's not done yet but I couldn't take it anymore and I will publish the finished results very soon. If it hadn't been for the store being out of my rock I would have been done by now. I knew I should have went to Home Depot. Oh well everything happens for a reason, and I ended up changing the design a little bit which I like better


For this floor I used 2x6's and 1x2's, again the 2x6's were used wood and everything else was new. I changed sealers this time for a couple of reasons, number one being I did not want an amber or gold effect in this room due to the colors in the drywall design on two of the walls. If you have questions about that let me know but it looks incredible with track lighting and a large picture, (in this case you guessed it horses).

I will let you know what I think after I put in on. It is also quite a bit cheaper than what I've been using which is always nice.

Oh yeah, no mortar this time just red lava rock and marble chips.

I will post more pictures and give more details later Have to get back to work.

Have an incredible day You not only deserve it, but are the one in charge of making it happen!!!! See Ya

Off To Home Depot For More Rock

      Hi momster

      Covered them with polyurethane, but if I did it again (another project now) I would probably use an epoxy. If they're not covered they are a pain to clean and walk on. I used the poly on my kitchen floor in another hub Now I working on a reversible one.

      Awsome floor. Did you cover the rocks with a top or did you leave them open?

      If you set the rock in a grout/adhesive you can use polyurethane, but it tends to turn gold in time. I really like using an epoxy it's a little more time consuming but well worth the effort in reference to cleaning and the finished look. Either one is good really. I'm working on a table top now that I put on a piece of plywood and put 1x2s around the edges and sealed. If I would have done the floor that way I could have switched it out which would have been sweet. Next time. Thanks

      The first two pictures did not show. Do you fill the rocks with some kind of sealer so that it then becomes permanent and washable? It looks pretty but I wonder how you keep it clean? What room is this? Guess I need a few more details... You have me curious!
