    It is easier then laying carpet - which i could never master. However was able to do this fairly easily. Just peel & stick and repeat a few hundred times [​IMG]

    I think I'm going to try it in a play room I'm making. I have some Ideas of some diffent patterns to try. I saw a office building recently that gave me the Idea. They had a textured carpet tiles with the textures running diffent ways, made a really cool effect.

    Thanks

    You probably want to look at the commercial type of carpet tile if you like what you saw in an office building. I used industrial tile in my theater and studio and it has worked out great. The best part is that if I do manage to damage an area of the carpet, yes I am a klutz, I only have to change out that area and not the whole carpet. Here is a link to an outlet that sells overruns that you might want to check out:

    It's too bad you're not in my area...a local liquidator has gobs of 18" and 20" squares for $0.99 each. I used these not only on the floor, but on the bottom section of the wall. Check out my signature for pictures of the room. The ones that they have here are rubber backed and do not need to be glued down, as long as the floor is flat. The tiles are specially made to create a vacuum when layed down, which makes it virtually impossible to pull up, unless you get under one corner.
