305/365 painted floor

I had two floor furnaces removed three years ago and have been considering painting the plywood inserts ever since. I used some leftover supplies and an easy method recently taught to me by a friend.

I altered the design of this gate to include a ring at the top,
can you see it?

I used Adobe Illustrator to tile the 30" x 19" image on letter paper and taped it together, layed a mask of contact paper on the floor and used spray adhesive to attach the printout on top. I stained the plywood earlier today.

I started to cut the design with an exacto knife and realized
I was cutting the wrong portions out.

Cutting finished.

Sprayed with matte black spray paint.
I will add more stain and then urethane.
