|Last section of blue carpet|
The floorboards just required a good clean because they had been covered with floor-covering. I used Nitromorse and course wire wool to clean deep into the grain of the wood then followed this with hot soapy water and a scrubbing brush and the boards came up to a reasonable standard for staining.
Working in sections and around the furniture situated in the room I have started the process of staining the floor with a coloured varnish and stain in antique pine. There are
still a few hours work left yet to bring the
floor to the required standard and each section
requires 3 coats of stain with 16 hours drying
time between coats. Below is a picture of where
I am to date and it is my intention to complete
the whole project during the course of the next
week, so watch this space for the finished product.
