Stains on hardwood floor

jane__nyOctober 18, 2008

Can I 'touch up' my oak floors without having to do the entire room? I was thinking of trying to hand sand a few small areas and put a coat of poly over.

I don't want to redo my entire living-room due to a few stains.

I doubt it. Poly is very difficult to 'touch up' as it does not 'feather'---blend together.

And floor poly---much different from regular poly----needs 3 coats to provide lasting protection.

Thank you. That is so depressing. We just can't afford to do this entire space. This area is one, large great-room and is the entire first floor. I'm not sure what to do.
