Fast Forward on the Floor!

I can't find all my pictures at the moment, so I'll post what the floor looks like now.  I'll have to do some before/and afters after I find them.  This picture shows the design painted and then the gel stain/glaze.  I still


need to top coat......about 4 or 5 times.  The green took me 3 days, which was way longer than I expected!  It was brutal being down on the floor like that.  I started out using tape which had to be razor cut for each corner.  Then it was peeling up the paint.  So I went to just free handing after I drew the lines with pencil.

Your kitchen floor turned out so great. I'm about to do something similiar to our wooden plank floor on our screened porch and am going for a translucent effect - with a lighter paint in a similar diamond pattern.

I'm just not sure about how to achieve what I want. I found a picture, here:

and am trying to figure out how to get that look. Any ideas? Thanks
