Before & After: Updating a Victorian Kitchen (and Bathroom)
9/14/12 04:55 PM

I redid the floors on my 1950s ranch in the living room, 2 bedrooms, and hallway that had been covered with carpet. It is my first house, and I didn't have the budget to hire out, plus I had a flexible move-in date. I have beautiful floors and have mostly forgotten how awful this project was :)

My suggestions:
1- Only attempt if you are not living in the house at the time.
2 - Find a square shaped orbit floor sander. It is much easier to get close the edges than with the circular shaped on that is pictured in this post. (I did not have success with hand sanders around the edges.)
3 - Change the the sandpaper often.
4 - As always, expect this to take 3 times longer than you plan.
