This room has hardwood floors from 1929 which had been painted over. Joseph set out to sand them down and refinish them to their original glory! Or…their aged glory, I suppose.
After days of sanding, here is their raw beauty.
This is the floors after he sealed them! This picture is at night so you can appreciate their full color and character.
This is the room in the daylight. I love the grays mixed with the browns in these floors!
Oh, did I mention he did two rooms?? This second room had carpet over it, so it was a great mystery as to the status of the floors underneath. Thankfully, the floors were fully intact! Unfortunately, years of sloppy painting and neglect were visible on them. But that just meant they needed a little extra attention! (aka: days of sanding)
A little sanding with this machine and a whole lot of hand sanding later….
(Can you see his excitement at me capturing this great candid!)
The floors retained a lot of their age and personality…
But they also stained beautifully!
