This last weekend I started working on the parquet flooring that is going in the livingroom and diningroom. It's the first time I've ever attempted such a feat, and while it's far from perfect, I'm happy with it so far. Any major flaws that I find can be hidden with a throw rug, furniture leg, or plant...or something. The colors are walnut, mahogany, and golden oak. Piece by piece..."oh, the drudgery of it all." :O) Definitely testing my patience!
