The floor, however, was another story.
We have removed almost all of the other carpet/linoleum offenders and refinished the original oak floors (I really do not understand why one would cover beautiful red oak floors in excellent condition with LINOLEUM). But the floor in the powder room remains. And it is awful.
|The former owners were very thorough. They even wallpapered doors and cabinets to provide just the right accent.|
|I imagine at some point that the stripes in this floor were probably white. Which is just soooo gross.|
I followed the other steps of sanding, cleaning, etc. in the post above.
|Hurrah for palm sanders. And tiny sanding jobs.|
What happened? Well, let's just say I was very happy with the results.
|Forgive me, the towel isn't straight. BUT, the floor looks so fresh and so clean post-painting.|
|I had to share my little $4 Dollar General rug that I think is super-cute too.|
