We put on the first coat of varnish today. Happy Valentines day!
The red is the plastic barrier that we put down in the livingroom and now we are putting it under this floor to protect from moisture.
The main part of the floor is maple and the ribbon is cherry.
The camera was all the way up to the ceiling at this picture so you can see the affect of the ribbon around the edge.
This room actually has 5 corners, two of them are in the little area from the diningroom to the kitchen. The other 3 are in the traditional corners of the room.

We are slowly working on adding wood flooring to our whole upstairs with scrap wood. This wood would have been thrown away, we go to the cabinet maker and get it from their trash. They are oak, maple, pine, cherry and birch boards 3" and 6" wide, in a variety of lengths. We are so thrilled with the livingroom that we can't wait see the diningroom and kitchen. We have plans for each room to be designed differently but still be the same wood. What fun it is to create this wonderful flooring.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Donald and Pamela Thompson

How in the world can you figure out all those angles and turns and corners and different lengths and widths??? I am stunned by how hard it looks and what a great job you are doing. It is truly fantastic and can't wait to see it finished, LOVE IT Georgia Posted: 7:28 pm on January 24th
