Our most recent project has been tackling the hardwood floor we uncovered under the carpet of the living and dining rooms. We (mostly Zack) spent all day sanding the old, belligerent varnish and aging off. We used a large industrial sander and still had to get on our hands and knees and hand sand most of it. But the good news is we are left with an absolutely gorgeous artful wood floor that will hopefully be varnished this week. It is well worth the sore arms and knees!
