Refinishing the Hardwood Floor
April 18, 2008

We rented a floor sander from Home Depot and got to work sanding the old finish off the floor, leveling it and smoothing it all out. It was a lot of work, but should make the floor look nice in the end. We decided not to stain the floor, but to just finish it with the polyurethane top coat.

Ready to start sanding...

Part way through sanding the living room.

Much better...

A closer look.

Part way through putting on the first coat (of 3) of polyurethane.

Brooke hard at work.

Finished with the first coat. Now we just need to let it dry
over night and do it again tomorrow.
