Need Hardwood Floor Refinishing Tips
I am refinishing a fifty year old oak floor. It's not perfect and I need to replace some boards here and there. But I am not looking for perfection. I would like to get some pretty descent results.
As you can see. I have some water spots here and there.
Some questions I have are. What is the best way to lighten up those spots? Also does it look like it is sanded enough to stain? It looks like there may be some clear coat here and there. Well the stain penetrate the clear coat if there is still some here and there? Next question. The kitchen was Stained a Walnut color. If I use a medium Brown stain with red in it. Well the Living room and Dining room blend together?
I tried some Minwax Polyshade Bombay Mahogany and it was looking really good on the first coat. But when I put a second coat. The dark pigment from the Bombay was way to dark and was covering up the wood grain. And making the floor look Black. So I sanded it back off. If anyone has any tips that may be helpful for this job. I would greatly appreciate the feed back. Thanks. Dave
