My refinished staircase
When we purchased our 1916 bungalow 8 years ago, all the wood (which is QS oak) was very dark and cracked. There were many layers of shellac/varnish, and it was not very pretty. Well, just this past week, I finished this years long project of completely sripping the wood and refinishing. I still have to do one more sanding and another coat of finish.
I just had to share the efforts of all my hard work with someone. Most people wouldn't appreciate all the hard work, but I know those on this forum will. Thanks for taking a look. The first picture shows a small section of the dark finish, and what I found underneath.
