Small lounge floor.
A lot of scraping old glue from previous carpet. Why the heck do they put so much?
2 days of hard work. .. just to get the glue off.
3 days to fill gaps with putty. Sand by hand scratches out.. remove rusted nails from the edge carpet grippers that rusted in to the boards. Washed floor twice…...then washed with sugar soap. Twice. Rinsed 5 times.
2 applications of wood borer insecticide.
No stain. ... just water based clear floor varnish. 3 coats.
All in all….8 solid days…..All by hand.. no machines.
It’s not a hard wood floor that would deserve a professional sanding. It’s just an old pine floor that needed a face lift.
Compared to how it used to be….. its just fab.
-- One day.....oh boy!!! One day..... I'll be half as good ..
