The use of plastic bags is restricted in quite a few cities, and if you don't happen to be carrying a reusable shopping bag on the day when you pop into the grocery store after work, you'll find yourself with a stash of paper bags at home. Yes, you could recycle them. But what if you could turn your paper bags into something truly astonishing? Like what, you ask? Like a new floor, for instance, or a vintage-inspired wall covering. Is it weird? Is it cool? Would you even have room to store enough paper bags to make a floor out of them? These DIY bloggers took the plunge, and they love the results of their DIY paper bag upcycling projects. Let's have a look!

Paper bag floor: Ashley from Domestic Imperfection wanted a new floor, but didn't have the budget for a pro job by a San Antonio flooring contractor. Not that a crafter like Ashley would even need a contractor; she did a totally amazing job herself. Ashley's flooring is made from paper bags that were glued to the underlayment, stained, and then covered in 12 coats of polyurethane.

Paper bag stairs: In a process similar to the paper bag stairs discussed above, Meg from Nutmeg Place transformed her stairs with paper bags, stain, and polyurethane.
