Some time ago I made the floor for one of the bedrooms in the house. I used lolly sticks, cutting them with an eze mitre cutter (I think that is what it's called?) I made a template of the room out of cardboard and then stuck the sticks to the cardboard. That way I could work at my kitchen table and not be tied to the house :-)

Once I had finished the floor I sanded it and then waxed it. I haven't stuck it down yet in the house because I still need to wallpaper the walls. Above is a picture of work in progress. You will see that I had drawn guidelines in pencil, can't say I managed to keep entirely to the lines all the time:-) oh and I used a wood stain on the sticks before I started to cut them.
By the way, on a completely different subject, can I just say thank you to all 27 of my followers! I was surprised but really pleased to see that many :-) You are all welcome, and if anyone has any tips for future floors please let me know!
