This floor is in the master bedroom, and it's definitely showing its age. Scratches, spills and stains have left their marks, and the overall feeling is worn and... dirty. But after seeing the dramatic restoration with the kitchen floors, Josh and I were ready to try to resurrect these, too. So Saturday, we rented a drum sander and got to work. After pulling out the old furnace grate and pulling up/pounding in umpteen nails and staples, we were ready to sand. And sand we did!
New flooring in this house would have cost in the thousands. Instead, we're out less than $150 to breathe new life into these floors while respecting the original features of the home. I'll take that any day!
I'm hoping we'll be moving into the master on Sunday. *Fingers crossed*. So excited! -Brin
