Back to the floorboards this afternoon.

It took a while to match up the floor trim pieces correctly so the pattern was continuous when it was straight.

Made it most of the way around and realized I needed to do the middle before I did the right wall trim, to make sure everything ended up parallel.

Stained everything but left parts of it unglued for now.

Wasn’t sure I liked the middle floorboards going lengthwise like that…and thought they might be a bit too narrow for old floorboards. I’ll try wider boards next time, but for now, I tried them at a different angle just to see.

Not sure I like that either. Here’s the lengthwise look again with furniture.

And here’s a third possibility I like better…I’d divide the middle floor into four quarters and do each quarter on a different angle.

Well, I’m still not sure what to do and I think wider floorboards might be better. So I’ll sleep on it a little. Good night.
