This week my mum and I made the floor for one of the rooms in the Swedish house. First we cut a sheet of card to the size of the floor in the room.
Next we drew the pattern the floor boards would take on the card.
It is important to double check that it fits in the room snugly before you start making the floor.
Then we slowly put the floor together to the pattern with thin strips of wood veneer. We used blonde honey coloured wood for a Scandinavian look.
It took quite some time, about five days.
Next we french polished the floor. It would have also looked good raw too.
The finished product is quite pleasing.
