Ayup. I think This Old House qualifies for 2nd cousin, at least.
Wanna see our lovely, gorgeous, very fine oak floors, sanded down to the grain and ready for polyurethane? First, a couple of befores:
Last year our Dream Team came and sanded for a week. This year we took it a step farther.
Isn't it gorgeous? This wood is almost 90 years old. Aged to perfection.
Next step- remove the dust particles and apply the first coat of poly.
We still have a long way to go (besides the 3 extra coats of poly we need to apply to 800 + square feet of wood); texturizing and painting the ceilings and walls and adding window, door and floor trim. But, the floors felt like a MAJOR accomplishment. What do you think?
