A few large sheets of plywood that are mounted together to form a dance floor? If done the right way it will work great ๐Ÿ™‚

Check around some inexpensive building supply stores for 4X8 plyboard, exterior paint and large hinges.  I love Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore. 

Eight boards will give you a 16X16 dance floor.  Twelve boards will give you a 16X 24 dance floor.  If you cut them into 4X4, you’ll have more flexibility on size arrangements.

Paint the boards with heavy nap rollers.  Use 3-4 coats for extra good coverage.  You can also paint a design if you want an artistic touch.  During you venue setup, attach the boards together on the underside with the large hinges.

Supply cost could range from $50 (from ReStore) to $200 Home Depot/Lowes for a 16X16 floor.

Our wedding is in 6 weeks and we’re dealing with a gravel and diy dance floor issue too. Did you end up making the plywood dancefloor and did it work out alright? Did it move around? How did you account for any uneven surfaces? ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!
