Looks good, but I would have staggered those joints more. They wouldn't have been as noticeable. I do like that color.
I was working the room. As it was I barely had enough to finish it. The joints are the same down the center and on the other side. Kinda looks like a design in it.
I'm not knocking it. It looks damn good. When I do a floor, I always measure so that my smaller pieces will be around the perimeter against the walls. Or I'll find my center point of the floor in both directions, strike two lines and start there. Normally, you can start a row, cut your ends in and be able to start your next row with a cut off piece. That's just the way I've always done it.
I started with a full peice to the left of the fireplace and worked from there. And this room is so out of square that I had to really work at making it look like it's square...
That's the main reason why I'll strike lines. You get the main focal point dead on.
If I had a couple more boxes that's the way I would have done it
I understand that completely. I always add more than it measures out to and wind up using all but a couple of pieces.
I'm just glad it's done and Mary is happy with it.
