Hi Bmbe. Yeah, in my free time I paint floorcloths, (less free time now!), which is basically just heavy canvas that I paint a design on, finish the edges and then give multiple coats of polyurethane. Paintings you can walk on - And it is easy to clean puppy pee off of them! :lol: Jac, thanks for your suggestion of a coupler. I am going to order one today. Annemarie.
