120 Copper Court - Parquet Flooring going in

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!

it might be testing your patience/endurance ...but damn it looks good & will look even better when you get that coat of varnish on it!!!

Thanks! I like the coppery tone of the floor; which goes with the theme of the house. Looking forward to getting Grazhina's fireplace. I think it will look great with the floor.
