The next time someone suggests that I pull up carpet and sand and refinish the wood floor underneath…I will think long and hard before I say, “Sure, let’s do it.” After a weekend spent sanding and scraping and sanding and sanding, I just don’t think I would make that choice again. Wow! A rented belt sander was in use all day on Friday–all day. The same sander was in use all day on Saturday–all day. The same sander was in use most of Sunday afternoon before we called it a day. Five people worked all day Saturday and six people worked on Sunday on.the.floor.
Today a coat of poly was brushed on and the floor problems are behind us. The walls have been painted and/or covered and light fixtures updated. Now the fun begins. I am posting some pictures of how things looked before and during so that we can remember how much work it was. Stay tuned for the after…….
