I have refinished a lot of floors, but this one defeated me. I hesitate to even post a photo because it’s so ugly. Thank God we have area rugs.
These are hundred-year-old cedar boards; you can’t get them anymore, so I have to save them. So, maybe when I have more money to spend, I can have a professional come in and sand it down. I tried. I really did. All I managed to do was ruin more sandpaper. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the icky varnish that is the root of all evil isn’t on all the floors, but I suspect it is.
In other news: Got the new alarm system installed today. Amazing what they can do now. Everything is wireless. No more sacrificing half a closet for a big metal box. Everything is in the keypad. The keypad is kind of ugly. I am already plotting ways I can disguise it.
Wrote 6 pages today, not a banner day. Might do a few more later. For now, the weather is gorgeous and my lungs could use a good clearing from all the fumes, so I’m heading out for a walk.
