We deiced to refinish the hardwood floors in our house. They were previously carpeted - so we ripped up the carpet and got to work on first cleaning the floors, then sanding and sealing them.
What we found when we ripped up the carpet. Eeeeeekkk! I was a bit overwhelmed when I saw this.
What they looked like after we hand-scrubbed the spots off.
Let the sanding begin! We rented the sander from Home Depot and went over the floors with 3 different grits of sand paper before we started the sealing process.
The finished product! we are very happy with how they turned out and can't believe the previous owner covered these beauties up with carpet.
