This is how it looked after I finishing stripping the varnish with 3M safest stripper.
This is after hours of sanding. We rented an orbital sander with 3 rotating disks.
And done!!! It still has a lot of character and its far from perfect. I enjoy wondering about the different things that have happened to this floor over the past 100 years. What are all of the different spots and stains from?
So many times we have done projects and forgotten to take pictures and wished we had when it was all done. Now, what am I going to do about trim and paint? :)
