I did the exact same thing last month. I took a 16 year old floor and put down a granite style peel and stick. It looks so amazing... it really does. The only drawback is that now I have an odour coming from the tiles. You know, that "new car" smell. I am in the middle of selling my house and I have made several posts here trying to figure out a good way to remove the odour.

How did you go about it? Did you strip it first and then apply a sealer before sticking tiles down? I am getting ready for my winter projects and that is one of them. I found a box of those tiles for 10.00 at a dollar store. I can't remember how many came in the box but there were quite a few of them. Is that a good price?
