We're refinishing the wood floor in our bedroom- Part 3!

When we did Chase's floor, it had been stained before but there were some spots that needed to be touched up. I ended up staining the whole floor to get it even! It looked so much nicer- warmer. Our floor looks like it never had any stain, so I ended up doing 2 coats on it. The first picture is the closet after it was done, compared to the rest of the wood that wasn't yet. The second picture is with the whole floor done.




John did the first coat of varnish last night and it looks so nice! He wants to do at least 3 coats, so it's going to be awhile before we get back in there, but it will be worth it!

We're refinishing the wood floor in our bedroom- Part 2!

Here are the pictures of the floor after it has been sanded- what a difference! John did about half one day and the rest the next day. He could barely stand up straight when he was done! We're not sure why the middle of the room is darker than the outside. It's like the outside was never stained or finished before.




Tomorrow I'll post the pictures after I put a coat of stain on the whole floor. I've actually done 2 coats now, but the first coat was much more dramatic! Now hopefully John will get home early enough to do the first coat of varnish before it gets dark tonight. He found it much easier to see where he was working with natural light when he did Chase's floor.

We're refinishing the wood floor in our bedroom!

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted something- not much has been happening around here that was worth sharing! Until now! We're refinishing the wood floors in our bedroom. We did Chase's room last fall and it turned out so well John wants to do ours, too. Our house is around 100 years old and has the original wood floors that have been covered with carpet. These pictures are what the room looked like after we pulled out the carpet and vacuumed. There's plaster and paint all over. Nice, huh?




Tomorrow I'll post the pictures of the floor after it has been sanded. What a difference!
