This floor was very intimidating sitting in its little plastic case, but in the end it wasn't difficult and it was a lot of fun watching it come together. Just follow the instructions and presto, in about 30 - 45 minutes you have a parquet floor!
I started by cutting a piece of cardstock to the size of my room and finding the center point. Then I started with the first four pieces.
Then came the largest of the sunburst sections.
Then the sections to fill in the center circle.
Then the three small pieces to fill in the sun burst.
And here it is . . . the finished 17th Century French-style Parquet!
I used a contact cement that is made to use with paper or light woods.
And here it is in the room.
I just have to order the squares to finish off the floor now that I know how many I need. Then I will use a gloss polyurethane and I will have a beautiful parquet floor for the ballerinas to piroet on!
