You will need Belt san­der; tape mea­sure; mask­ing tape; wa­ter-based dark wood stain; wa­ter-based clear satin wood fin­ish

STEP ONE Sand your tim­ber floor­ing with the belt san­der, then mea­sure and mark out a bor­der around the edges of the room – it’s up to you how wide you want it to be – and mea­sure and mark out your di­a­mond pat­tern on the floor­ing.

STEP TWO Us­ing mask­ing tape, sec­tion off the bor­der first and ap­ply the dark stain to your bor­der. You will need to use about three coats. Leave to dry.

STEP THREE Tape up the edges of your pat­tern and ap­ply three coats of the dark stain to each di­a­mond.

STEP FOUR Once all the stain is dry, strip off tape and ap­ply three coats of clear wood fin­ish to the en­tire floor. Leave to dry. You’ll need to set aside two days for this project.
