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.

What a tuff decision regarding the way the floorboards will run. For what it is worth, I like the effects of either of the angled options in particular the last photo. Hope that a good nights sleep will be able to resolve it for you.
Thanks. I agreed with you know the angled look and am glad I went with it. Sleeping onto things always helps…

Thank you. Can’t wait for the room to fully come together…
