DIY: $69 River Rock Stone Pebble Hand Laid Floor


brenda mills: you gave me hope for my horrid , narly  bathroom floor…most videos are by experts that have been doing their stuff for years….I know I can do it!

mistyaqua: Oh my gosh that came out lovely.

Luiz Gos: horrível!

mistyaqua: LOL I love the video description!

Adam G: Incredible job! Well done!!

MOM ON A MISSION: I will be attempting this in my bathroom 😀 Beautiful doesnt describe this floor! Well done!

Partly Cloudy: For future DIYers who have door in the way: another option would be to take the door down and shave off enough of the bottom to make it fit. There's probably a YouTube video on how to do something like that, rather than me explaining it here.

Carl Lacson: Now that's what I call "PATIENCE" :-)

Brett Winn: OMG … lady, you rock. I wish you lived next door. There aren't NEARLY enough people like you in the world, blazing a trail in public for others to follow, thinking out loud, problem-solving as you go and not caring that the clutter in the next room shows on your video because you're busy doing something more fun. Your video is a great tutorial. However, you get extra credit for being real! I loved it!

Jody Horvath: I heard that after a year or so the river rocks break from the grout and starts cracking. has this happen to you. have you run into any issues with this floor at all😃
