Progress is still taking place and this week has really helped us see some light at the end of the tunnel!
Our focus last weekend was on refinishing the original hardwood floors. Let me emphasize the word original because I am pretty sure the floors are the only thing we haven't had to replace completely.
This isn't our first go around with a refinishing floors. We also redid my father-in-laws floors last October which was a good learning experience for us. Thanks for being the guinea pig Kenneth!
At Kenneth's we used a belt sander and had a few small issues with it so Nathan was convinced this time that a vibrator sander would do the trick, even though it might take more time. Needless to say, after about an hour of using the vibrator sander, we headed back to Home Depot (don't tell my good friends at Lowe's...they would be so disappointed!) to rent the belt sander as well because we were hardly making a dent!
Here is what we started with...
|The old linoleum left the kitchen floor in pretty bad shape.|
|Living Room before & during sanding process...|
|These would be the disgusting bathroom floors...|
|Left: Small Bedroom Before Right: Hallway going in to "master"|
|Master: Before Sanding Master: After Sanding|
