    I took some carpet up in my bathroom to replace it with vynal wood flooring stuff (not the best description). Found part of the flooring had got damaged at the edge (we have sheets of chipboard of some description so I got a new board but instead of cutting it straight at each end it has a nice squiggly pattern at one end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think I have got it right now just got to take a smidge of the other end to fit it in. Then the new floor covering can go down (I hate diy)

    In the end though I bet it will look nice,and you saved $$$$$ by doing it yourself. I hate caulking and other simple things like putting in a toilet,but I can't stand the thought of paying $100 to install one,lol.

    I love vinly flooring that is one piece even though it is a pain to install.Don't like the squares.

    Started in Cairo, visited the pyramids and the isle of philae. Went down the Nile then into the Sinai where we went to St Catherine's monestary where the burning bush is. Saw dawn at the top of Mount Sinae, then a few days in Deneb (where walking down the street at night someone asked if I wanted a husband, very funny) we went to one restaurant where I got to feed some of the local cats there was so much food and then we got to see a little cat porn as they decided under the table was the best place to have a little fun. WE also walked the White Canyon and the Coloured Canyon where the sides of the walk down into the canyon where so steep I did it bare foot.

    Well, you can call it Cut to fit. Did you do all of that freehand with a jigsaw?
