Floor patch

I wanted to show off my patch of a section of floor that was missing due to a heat register I had relocated a few years ago.  As you can see from the previous patch on the floor, this room has had quite a history of the registers being move around.  Stephanie had suggested stealing some of the flooring from a closet, so I robbed a piece from the coat closet and cut it down to size.  It came out pretty good, especially when compared to the giant, poorly thought out patch just in front of it.

  1. That’s a pretty good result. The color is slightly different, but I suppose it’s because that part of the flooring wasn’t exposed to as much direct sunlight. Still, easier than trying to color match a brand new board.

    Thanks for the post!

  2. Excellent post – we similarly do this in tenement flats (apartments) in Glasgow, Scotland. Often have to uplift pitch pine flooring in cupboards to patch in repairs.
