more buried treasure! old 1910 lino floor
Oooh, look what I just discovered under the vct tile in my new old house. The vintage gods have blessed us and the particle board above it was not glued on, just stapled, so it's just a matter of ripping it off carefully. The surface of the linoleum looks pretty good, albeit with some yellowing, and I've read that one can sand it carefully and refinish, since the color goes all the way through.
Since the previous owners absconded with the house plans, I'm hoping this lino border can provide a 'map' as to the original outlines of the kitchen space.
